Method

  1. Put the pared lemon zest in a small saucepan with the ginger and sugar. Measure the lemon juice and make up to 100ml with water. Add to the pan and heat gently, stirring occasionally, until it comes to the boil. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 5 mins, then remove from the heat and leave until cool to infuse.
  2. Cut all the melon flesh into 2cm chunks. Tip into a bowl and strain the cooled syrup over the top. Chill for 1 hr, or overnight. The melon will keep, covered, in the fridge for 2 days.
  3. To serve, divide the melon between 4 bowls, top with the raspberries, yogurt and granola, then drizzle with a little of the syrup.

Tip: Short on time? Use the cooled syrup without chilling it – the flavour won’t be as intense but it will still be delicious.
