How it's done

Cut the melon into cubes, tear off the peppermint leaves.

Divide the melon and peppermint leaves between the ice cube moulds, fill with water, cover and freeze for approx. 2 hrs.

While still boiling hot, ladle the syrup into the prepared jars and fill to just below the rim, seal immediately, leave to cool.
