Honeydew with Mint and Ginger

Honeydew mint ginger

Make sure your honeydew melon is nice and ripe, and if you can’t find ripe honeydew, use cantaloupe.


Serves 8

  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1″ piece of ginger, cut into medallions
  • 1 honeydew melon, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 2 tablespoons mint, chopped


  1. Combine the sugar, water and ginger in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil and stir until the sugar dissolves. Turn off heat and let the ginger steep in the hot syrup for 10 minutes. Remove the ginger and let the syrup cool.
  2. Pour the cooled syrup over the honeydew and sprinkle the melon with mint.
