How to Make It

Step 1    

Combine all the peppercorns with the allspice in a spice grinder or a mortar and finely grind them.

Step 2    

Using a soupspoon or melon baller, scoop out the melon flesh without cutting through the rind. Replace the flesh in the melon halves and sprinkle each with about 1/4 teaspoon of the spice mix. Garnish with mint sprigs and serve.

Suggested Pairing

An aromatic Jurançon from the foothills of the Pyrenees, with hints of peaches, acidity and sweetness will mirror the melons' flavor and soften their sweetness.
