Make sure your honeydew melon is nice and ripe, and if you can’t find ripe honeydew, use cantaloupe.
- 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.
- Pour the cooled syrup over the honeydew and sprinkle the melon with mint.
