I bought a Pepino Melon today, out of sheer curiosity. It is a ovely fruit, about the size of an overgrown plum, with a gorgeous golden mustard colored skin and deep violet/brown stripes going lengthwise.
I looked it up and saw you can chop it and eat it plain, or over a spinach salad, but was wondering if anyone else had any ideas for this little beauty.
Here's a photo I googled:
Maybe cut it in half and grill it along with a pork tenderloin. Or use a melon baller and then freeze the balls for a good cold summery snack, or make a frozen margarita! Or puree it, and stick it in those pre made popsicle forms Or serve it as an appetizer with some proscuito wrapped around it.
