Melon KISS

This is one of the fastest and simplest dessert recipes around which will still make you look like a culinary genius. Just 5 minutes of prep time!

The Basic Recipe:
1. Cut a melon in half
2. Scoop out the seeds
3. Fill the melon “bowl” with a white dessert wine
4. Serve with a spoon

What sweet wine should you use? I would recommend an Austrian Beerenauslese or Eiswein (Ice Wine). You want to use something of quality, but there’s no need to spend a fortune on the dessert wine.

Here are a few more tips to make this recipe even better, or a bit fancier:

-Use a very ripe cantaloupe as the melon

-Chill the melon in the refrigerator for a few hours or more before making the dessert & serving

-Use a melon baller, and then place the perfectly shaped melon balls back into the cantaloupe shell and pour the dessert wine over.

-For smaller parts: cut the melon halves down into smaller “bowls”. Cut the extra melon into small pieces and place those into the bowl. This method also uses less dessert wine per serving.

-Use a melon-baller, and then place the melon balls into a fancy dish and serve that way.

-Another melon-baller thought: freeze the melon balls and then place them in either the rustic melon bowl or other serving dish.

-Serve your Melon KISS with some excellent vanilla ice cream on the side.

You can find many Austrian dessert wines by doing a simple search on Google, but here are some dessert wines that are fantastic values that I would particularly recommend for this recipe:

Gsellmann & Gsellmann Beerenauslese 2001. It comes in a 500ml bottle, which is a bit more than the usual half-bottle size, so it will go further.

Gsellmann & Gsellmann Eiswein 2001. The Scheurebe grape used to make this Icewine might just be the perfect partner for the melon flavors.

Heiss Blaufränkisch Eiswein 2002. This is an Icewine made from the red Blaufränkisch grape. It’s a bit more expensive than the other wines mentioned, but a really fascinating choice.

Weiss Grüner Veltliner Eiswein 1999. At just $18.99 for a half-bottle, this is one of the best-priced, excellent quality right Icewines available, period.

Delight in!
