Melon with Sweet Ginger Mushrooms Recipe

Melon with Sweet Ginger Mushrooms Recipe

Ingredients : Serves 4

225 g/8 oz button mushrooms

300 ml/0.5 pt/1.25 cups ginger wine

20 ml/1.5 tbsp soft brown sugar

1 small honeydew melon
A few mint leaves, to garnish

Method :

Put the mushrooms, ginger wine and sugar in a saucepan, bring slowly to the boil, then cover and simmer gently for 10 minutes until the wine has reduced and become syrupy. Pour into a warm jar, put the lid on loosely and leave to cool. When cold, screw down the lid tightly and keep in a cool place until required. The mushrooms will keep for several days.

Cut the melon flesh into small cubes, or use a melon bailer to make tiny spheres. Just before serving, toss the melon with the mushrooms and syrup and serve garnished with mint.
