So, imagine you get a honeydew melon at your farmer’s market, and you wait a bit too long to cut it, then you find out it’s very sweet but a bit too mushy for your melon-loving kids to eat. What should you do? Make sorbet!
I used the ingredients from this recipe, although I didn’t bother straining the lime zest from the mixture. It’s very quick, because there’s no pesky simple-syrup making (and cooling!) step to slow down the process. It came out great! There are also numerous mint honeydew sorbet recipes, but I didn’t have any fresh mint on hand. Maybe next time.
