How to Make Jicama, Melon, and Cucumber Skewers
Make the dipping sauce first. Add fresh raspberries, water, and a little granular sweetener (I used Lakanto, but you could also use Swerve) to a small saucepan and place over a medium heat.
Cook the sauce until the fruit has completely broken down, then strain through a fine mesh sieve to remove the pips.
Leave to cool. If you want a slightly thicker sauce you could whisk in a tiny pinch of xanthan gum !
Prepare the cucumber by slicing it up then cutting the slices into quarters. Thread the cucumber pieces onto small wooden sticks.
Prepare the jicama and melon (i used cantaloupe – my favorite!) by cutting off the rind/skin, and then dicing them. Thread these onto the sticks too.
Transfer everything to a serving plate (I used this gorgeous blue Le Creuset platter) and pour the raspberry dipping sauce into a small bowl.
