Banana and Melon in Orange Vanilla Sauce - Africa

Serves 4
1 1/4 cups orange juice
1 vanilla pod or a few drops vanilla essence (or vanilla extract)
1 tsp orange rind
1 tbsp sugar
4 bananas
1 honeydew melon
2 tbsp lemon juice

1. Place the orange juice in a small saucepan with the vanilla pod, orange rind and sugar and gently bring to a boil.

2. Reduce the heat and simmer gently for 15 minutes or until the suffice is syrupy. Remove from the heat and leave it to cool. If using vanilla essence, stir into the sauce once it has cooled.

3. Roughly chop the bananas melon, place in a large serving bowl and toss with the lemon juice.

4. Pour the cooled sauce over the fruit and chill before serving.

Stars: 2 1/2
Thoughts: This wasn't bad, but it wasn't great either. I think there's a better fruit salad recipe out there. I couldn't get the liquid to turn to a syrup so it was really runny.
