Green Fruits in Jasmine Tea Syrup

From Carol C

  • 4 tsp jasmine tea leaves
  • 1 C sugar
  • Grated zest of 2 limes
  • juice of 2 limes
  • 6 kiwi, peeled and sliced
  • 1 ripe honeydew melon, scooped into balls or diced
  • l lb. green grapes, cut in half
  • sprigs of fresh mint for garnish if desired

Bring 1 C water to boil and add tea; infuse for 4-5 minutes, strain and discard leaves. Add sugar and lime zest and stir over medium heat until sugar dissolves, then bring liquid to boil. Reduce heat and simmer 1-2 minutes. Remove from heat and add lime juice. Place fruit in serving bowl and pour syrup over. Cover, refrigerate 4-6 hrs. Remove at least 20 minutes before serving and garnish with mint. Serves about 12. Good as a dessert as it's pretty sweet!
