"I haven't tried making this yet, but I would try it with under-ripe melon, to prolong the cooking time, and baste the melon with the sauce."

"While I really liked the flavor combination of the glaze and the honeydew, I have not been able to successfully execute this dish. On the grill, the glaze basically ran off the melon into the fire. I tried it again in a non-stick skillet and the melon became mushy."
