  • 1 Pure Flavor® Oronai Sweet Charentais Melon
  • 12 oz Pure Flavor® Sweet Blooms® Strawberries, sliced for garnish
  • 24 mini tart shells, baked to package instructions
  • 1 orange, zested
  • 1 egg
  • ¾ cup whipping cream, divided
  • ½ cup milk
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 2 tsp cornstarch
  • 1 tsp all-purpose flour
  • Fresh mint, for garnish


Step 1

Halve melon and scoop out the seeds. Using a spoon or melon baller scoop half into melon balls and thinly slice the remaining melon for garnish. Set aside.

Step 2

In a small pot off the heat, whisk together the sugar, cornstarch, and flour. Add the egg, milk, orange zest, and ¼ cup of cream and stir to combine.

Step 3

Bring mixture to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly until the mixture thickens.

Step 4

Remove from the heat. Pour into a bowl and cover with plastic wrap directly on the pastry cream. Let cool and refrigerate for 1 hour 30 minutes or until the cream is completely chilled.

Step 5

In a bowl, whip the remaining cream with an electric mixer until firm peaks form. Using a spatula, fold the whipped cream into the pastry cream.

Step 6

Pipe the pastry cream into the cooled tart shells. To finish, roll melon slices into rosettes or top with melon balls and sliced berries. Garnish with fresh mint and serve.
