Ingredients

Black Pepper Herb Honey:
Skewers:

Directions

Special equipment: 24 mini bamboo skewers

For the honey: Stir together the honey, 1/4 cup water, the pepper, thyme and rosemary in a small saute pan over medium heat. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat to low and simmer for about 8 minutes. Remove from the heat and set aside to cool slightly. Strain the honey into a small bowl and set aside while you assemble the skewers.

For the skewers: Using a melon baller, scoop out 24 rounds from the peeled melon. Thread each skewer with a melon ball, basil leaf, mozzarella ball, another basil leaf and an olive. To serve, place the skewers on a platter and drizzle with the honey.

Cook's Note

You can also use an 8-ounce ball of fresh mozzarella, drained, patted dry and cut into 3/4-inch cubes if you can't find ciliegine.
