DIRECTIONS

  • Remove either end of the fruit and slice into 1/4 - 1/2 inch pieces.
  • Place in a large pot and cover with water and add the sugar and spices.
  • Bring to a boil and leave to cool for 3 hours. The fruit will soak up the sugar and spices.
  • Preheat oven to 150F.
  • Drain any liquid off and keep it for something else.
  • Place fruit on baking sheets.
  • Place in the oven with the door propped open to allow the steam to escape. Turn every hour or so until the fruit is done.
  • Store in an airtight container.
  • The cooking time is only an estimate, it will vary with how much you drained off, the humidity etc.
