Paludeh Garmac

This typical Persian dessert is great for a dinner party as it looks spectacular and is easy to make. Not to mention that it is syn free. That is, I am assuming rose water is syn free, I can't find it in the book or on line. The original recipe also added grapes, though in all honesty, I forgot to add them! Husband even bought some grapes this morning especially for it. Just as well in one way, as the mix (without the grapes) was just the right amount to fit into the empty melon shells. 


Serves 2
Syn Free on Extra Easy

1 small melon
1 peach
a handful strawberries
½ tbsp rose-water
juice of half a lemon
½ tbsp sweetener

Using a melon baller, scoop out the flesh from the melon, leaving the skin intact. With a spoon, scrape out the rest and set the skins aside. Chop the strawberries, leaving two for decoration. Remove the stone from the peach and chop. You can peel it if you wish – I didn't as I like the texture of the skin. Mix all the fruit together, add the lemon juice, rose-water and sweetener. Mix well to combine, then serve in the melon skins, decorated with the whole strawberry.
