Prep Time 15 minutes
Total Time 1 hour 30 minutes
12 ounces green grapes
2 cups water
1 cup sugar
1 cup lemon thyme or regular thyme sprigs, coarsely chopped
1 green apple
3 kiwifruits, peeled and sliced
4 to 5 cups honeydew melon balls (from 2 melons)
Freeze grapes on a rimmed baking sheet for 1 hour.
Meanwhile, make the syrup: Bring water and sugar to a simmer in a medium saucepan, stirring until sugar dissolves. Remove from heat, and add lemon thyme. Let stand, covered, until cooled completely. Strain syrup through a fine sieve; discard solids.
Thinly slice apple. Divide apple, kiwifruits, melon, and grapes among 8 bowls. Pour syrup over tops just before serving.
