While the original Fruit Skewers recipe advocated the use of pineapple, watermelon and cantaloupe melon I exchanged the watermelon for cherries, having a punnet that needed using up. While the skewers were on the griddle I basted them with the syrup. Ensure there is a little mint on each piece – delicious.
The syrup is a mix of sugar (1/2 cup), honey (1/4 cup), mint and lime zest boiled. Sublime.
