How to make Melon Prosciutto Mozzarella Skewers

If using, start the Honey Balsamic Glaze.

In your 8″ cast iron pan (or other cooking pan), add the balsamic vinegar and honey. Bring to medium heat and stir until bubbling, about 5 minutes once medium heat is reached.

Add the pureed garlic and a pinch of sea salt (ASHLEYR for 15% off) to the mixture and stir until the mixture becomes foamy.

Reduce to low heat and allow the mixture to simmer for 30-40 minutes until thickening.

While the glaze is simmering, make the skewers.

Cut the cantaloupe and honey dew melon in half and scoop the seeds out of each half.

Take your melon baller and scoop out balls from both the cantaloupe and honey dew melon halves.

If your mozzarella is already portioned out into balls, leave them as-is. If it’s in a block (like mine was), cut the 8 oz block into 20 pieces or so….or more/less if you want bigger or smaller chunks.

Take your skewer sticks and stack your ingredients however you wish. I followed a pattern of a melon ball, cheese or prosciutto, the other melon ball, and cheese or prosciutto (whatever one I didn’t use previously).

Note: I used 8-inch skewer sticks and made about 10 total.

Put it all together!

Once the glaze is done and thick, place it in a bowl for serving.

Note: the glaze must be stored at room temperature. I made the mistake of storing it in the fridge and it hardened.

Place the skewers in the fridge for about 30 minutes to set.

Once cooled, take the skewers out, place them on your serving dish, and drizzle some of the glaze over the top.

Serve and enjoy! Leftovers (skewers only) can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for 2-3 days.
