Recipe's preparation

    Crème Fraîche
  1. Insert Butterfly. Place Creams in TM bowl and beat for 15 seconds on speed 4.

  2. Set aside in a glass bowl and cover loosely with plastic wrap and let stand in the kitchen or other reasonably warm spot overnight, or until thickened. In cold weather this may take as long as 24 hours.

  3. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours, after which the Crème Fraîche will be quite thick. The tart flavour will continue to develop as the crème fraîche sits in the refrigerator.

  4. Finely Chopped Mint
  5. Chop fresh Mint 2-3 seconds on speed 7. Set aside.

  6. Soup

    Place Tomatoes, Cucumbers and Rockmelon in TM bowl and chop for 10 seconds on speed 4 with aid of the spatula. Scrape down the sides.


    Add Orange zest, Mint and Sour Cream or Crème Fraîche and chop for an additional 15 seconds on speed 7. Chill.


    To serve, ladle into bowls and garnish with a bit of chopped Cucumber and a sprig of Mint.
