Melon lavender soup

This soup makes for a slightly sweet appetizer or a very original dessert! Simply chop 2 large melons into small pieces and then blend until smooth. Saute 4 finely chopped shallots in a pan along with 1 tablespoon olive oil for a few minutes or until the shallots start to become transparent. Then pour in the melon puree, followed by a bit of chicken stock to thin it out to your desired consistency. Pour into a bowl and decorate with edible lavender and slices of cured ham.
