Polka-Dot Minty Melon Mold
Mint adds another dimension to this colorful watermelon gelatin mold.
Why This Recipe Works
Our Polka-Dot Minty Melon Mold highlights the flavor and color of several different types of melon. We made a mint gelatin by preparing a simple syrup from water, mint, and sugar. We strained the mixture well to remove any mint leaves that might have marred the texture of the gelatin. We also made sure to completely dissolve the gelatin before pouring it over the fruit in the mold—undissolved bits of gelatin turned tough and chewy once chilled.
