Melon and Kiwi Fruit Salad
100 g caster sugar
200 ml water
50 g fresh ginger – grated or thinly sliced
1 medium Galia melon in balls or bite-sized pieces
4 kiwi fruit – peeled and cut into wedges
This recipe can be prepared in advance and chilled overnight.
Place the caster sugar in a heavy based saucepan and put on a low heat until the sugar has melted and changed to a light golden colour, resembling runny honey.
Remove the pan from the heat; add the water, taking great care, as the mixture will spit and splutter. Add the ginger and return the syrup to the heat. Bring to the boil and simmer until all the caramel has melted.
Pour the syrup over the fruit, chill before serving.
Delicious served with a lemon sorbet.
