Directions Edit

  1. Drain all the fruits and reserve the syrup.
  2. Mix all the syrup together, reserve 280 ml and drain off the remainder.
  3. Put the syrup into a saucepan.
  4. Add the spices and bring to the boil.
  5. Cover the pan and let it simmer for 20 minutes.
  6. Uncover and reduce the syrup to half its original volume by boiling for about five minutes.
  7. Remove from heat and allow the syrup to cool.

  11. Arrange the mangoes on top, then put in the reserved peach and guava.
  12. Strain the spiced syrup and pour over the fruits.
