Melon, Parma Ham and sweet balsamic sauce

Summer Picknicks at the dam, or snazzy party snacks….. these parma ham and melon parcels just works, time after time, such a pity the melon is seasonal, but papaya works as well as long as it is sweet and firm…

You will need:
One Melon, cut into small size slices
Thinly sliced parma ham, enough to have wrap around the melon
125ml white balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup castor sugar
1/2 cup chopped mint

Make the sauce in advance by cooking the balsamic vinegar and castor sugar for about 10 minutes, until it’s thickened.
Let the sauce cool and place in a jar or container, ready to travel to your picknick destination. The sauce needs to cool down.

Cut the melon and wrap the parma ham around it, keep in fridge until needed, even better if you cut the melon in advance and wrap the parma ham while plating at your destination.

At the picknick spot, whip out your white platter, i always take my white platter with me, visual visual visual…. wrap the parma ham around the melon, sprinkle mint over and drizzle with sauce.

The sauce is a real winner, you won’t be able to keep your fingers off the platter….

Picknick at the dam…

    This recipe takes me back to the Netherlands in 1993 when I was first introduced to the combination of parma ham and melon – unforgetable!
