  Melon 4 Small, cut in half and seeded
  Vanilla ice cream 3 Tablespoon
  Apricots 4 Large, sliced (Fresh Or Canned)
  Peaches 4 Large, sliced (Fresh Or Canned)
  Pitted cherries 24
  Strawberries 16
  Apples 2 , peeled, cored and sliced
  White mint liqueur 8 Tablespoon
  Egg whites 3
  Sugar 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Salt To Taste

Fill each melon half with 3 tablespoons ice cream.
Evenly divide the apricots and peaches among them.
Add three cherries, two strawberries, quarter of an apple and one tablespoon of the liqueur to each half.
Set aside.
Prepare the meringue by beating the egg whites with the salt and cream of tartar until foamy.
Gradually beat in the sugar, a table- spoon at a time, until soft peaks form and the sugar is dissolved.
Cover each melon with the meringue, sealing the edges well.
Sprinkle with the sugar.
Arrange the melon halves on a baking pan filled with crushed ice.
Broil for two to three minutes, or until the meringue is a pale golden color.
Serve immediately.
