The watermelon here came from a stall at the turning off the Cadiz-Malaga coast road to the fantastic Roman ruins at Baelo Claudia. We spent a great day there with Richard and Ceri and their kids Sam and Anna.
Half a watermelon
1/2 litre of freshly squeezed orange juice
2 tablespoons of demerara sugar
1 teaspoon of green tea (or 1 teabag)
- Combine the orange juice and sugar in a saucepan, bring to the boil, and stir to make sure all the sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat, and add the green tea.
- Cut the watermelon into smallish chunks, put in a large bowl or tupperware container, strain the orange syrup over it, cover and leave in the fridge for an hour or two. (Or overnight.)
