Melon Boats ©

March 26, 2012

A simple but refreshing summer fruit……..





5-6 persons depending on the size of your Melon




1 Melon

Glacé cherries

A little sugar, if needed

Mulberry leaves…If available.



1. Wash and cut melon into suitable segments.I usually cut in half and then each half into three.

2. With a large cook’s knife cut under the melon flesh, near the skin near to peel, but not so near, that you are cutting through unripe melon.

3.Then cut across at 2 cm intervals, (see photo,) and gently push each slice in opposite directions!

4. Decorate with Glacé  cherries and arrange on serving dish on a bed of Mulberry leaves, or other edible leaves, if available.


N.B. If the Melon is not very sweet, sprinkle with a little white sugar. The sugar melts straight away. This can be prepared two hours beforehand.
