This was divine! A little difficult for me, as I don't generally like "high-maintenance" cooking (i.e. stuff I have to actually pay attention to!), but well worth the trouble. I can't describe the taste; it is something everyone will have to try for themselves. It was just melony enough without being too much, and a little tangy. Very dreamy!!
