cook 20 mins
  • 350 ml (12 fl oz) guava, apple or raspberry and guava juice
  • 2 tablespoons rosewater
  • 3 cardamom pods, lightly crushed
  • 2 star anise
  • 2 tablespoons soft light brown sugar
  • 1 papaya, cut in half, deseeded and cut into chunks
  • 2 kiwifruit, peeled and cut into chunks
  • 1 small pineapple, peeled, cored and cut into chunks
  • 250 g (8 oz) strawberries, hulled and halved if large
  • Pour the fruit juice and rosewater into a small saucepan, add the cardamom, star anise and sugar and place over a low heat. Stir to dissolve the sugar, then simmer gently for 5–6 minutes until fragrant. Pour into a large, shallow bowl and set aside to cool.
