Cold Melon Soup with Wild Thyme Honey

This recipe came from the Florida newspaper Sunsentinel.com, and is sold by a cafe/deli store called the Flamingo Rd Farmers Market, who sell an imported Greek Thyme Honey - generally agreed to be almost as good as NZ thyme honey!

10 Cups Watermelon Chunks (seeded)

3 tablespoons wild thyme honey

2 pounds (about 4 cups) fresh fruits, seeded and cubed as needed*

1 cup golden raisins

4 mint leaves, bruised, plus extra for garnish

Step 1

Place watermelon chunks in the bowl of a food processor fitted with a metal blade or in a blender container. Add wine and honey and puree until smooth and liquefied. Transfer to a large serving bowl; stir in fruit chunks and mint.

Step 2

Cover, and refrigerate for at least 4 hours until well chilled. Serve in soup plates, garnished with fresh mint leaves as a first course, a side dish or as a light lunch or dessert.

*Use whatever summer fruits you have on hand or a mix of all: peaches, plums, nectarines, melons, grapes, blueberries, cherries, apricots. Don't be too concerned with amounts.
