Fruit Salad in Orange Spiced Syrup

A light dessert for summer. Use whatever fruit is at its peak in your market. Pack it in the ice chest for your next picnic.

Ingredients

Syrup:
1 orange
1/4 cup GOLDEN BLOSSOM HONEY
1 cup water
2 whole star anise or 1 teaspoon anise seeds
1/2 of a cinnamon stick
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Fruit:
1/2 honeydew melon, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 mango, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 pint strawberies, hulled and quartered

Directions

Syrup: Remove peel from orange using a vegetable peeler and cut into 1 1/2 inch strips. Save orange for another use. Combine all syrup ingredients in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, about 7 minutes. Discard cinnamon stick and star anise but not orange peel. Let syrup cool.

Meanwhile, prepare fruit. Place in a bowl and pour cool syrup over fruit. Refrigerate until ready to serve, up to 8 hours.
