Reduce heat to low; simmer uncovered about 8 minutes, stirring frequently, until sugar has dissolved and syrup has thickened. Stir in sliced mint. Cover; refrigerate at least 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.

  • If you're entertaining a crowd, make the syrup a day ahead of your gathering. The melon pieces left after making the balls can be stored in the refrigerator for snacking.
