1. Wash the fruit and cut it in half.

4. Shred the peel finely and put this into another basin with the remaining water and the juice.

5. Leave both to soak for 24 hours, if liked.

6. Strain the pips, etc through a muslin bag and tie loosely.

7. Put the bag and strained liquor, the peel, and juice into a preserving pan and bring to simmering point.
