Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 Cup dry white wine
  • 1/3 Cup Vanilla Bean Cane Sugar*
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh mint leaves
  • 1/2 ripe cantaloupe, halved, seeded, cut into 3/4-inch cubes (about 3 cups)
  • 8 Ounces strawberries, quartered
  • 1 Cup seedless green grapes, halved lengthwise

Directions

Bring the wine, sugar, and mint leaves to a boil in a small saucepan, stirring until the sugar is dissolved. Boil for 2 minutes. Remove from the heat. Strain mint leaves out of the mixture. 

Combine the cantalope, strawberries, and grapes in a large bowl. Pour the warm wine mixture over and toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate until cold, stirring occasionally, at least 2 hours. 

Garnish with chopped mint leaves. 

Summer Shopping Tip

As an alternative to sugary, salty, processed foods, try shopping for fruits and vegetables that are in season.

Summer Cooking Tip

For a healthier alternative, substitute honey or molasses for sugar in baking recipes, and use a 3:1 blend of canola oil to olive oil instead of butter when cooking over the flame.
