What a wonderful surprise! I'll be sharing this with my honeydew loving sister as soon as possible! I'm sure it would be great with the cantaloupe that awalde used as well. I let my syrup sit for about 5 hours, and think that may be just about right.....scared it might be overpowering if it sat longer. Made for 123 Tag. Thanks for sharing!
Kato, we all loved the recipe, as well as my guest!
I used an Italian melon (I don't know the name) real ripe for this.
I used a combination of normal basil and an other similar to the sweet thai basil, the sauce had time to soak a for 3 hours! Finally the sauce was parfumed, hot but not tooo much.
I served the ingredients (melon, salt, pepper, basil and syrup) on the table and everybody arranged this in his dish. I forgot the olive oil, sorry!
Delicious and "special"!
Thanks a lot!
This was fantastic. Such a tasty way to serve melon. It was perfect for our bbq. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
