● 300 g mangosteen fruit
● 300 g sugar
● 50 g water
● juice of 1/2 lemon
Using a sharp knife, carefully slice around the fruit and remove the top part.
Be careful to not cut yourself as the exterior of the fruit is very hard.
Using a spoon remove the flesh of the fruit.
Try to remove the flesh whole.
Clean all the fruit and put them in a bowl.
Next, in a large pot, put the water and sugar and boil on medium heat.
Once the sugar has dissolved add the fruit from the bowl and continue boiling until the syrup thickens, about 30-35 minutes.
To see if the syrup has the desired consistency, put some syrup on a saucer and allow to cool.
Once it has cooled tilt the plate slightly and if it is not runny, the syrup is ready.
Two minutes before turning off the heat add the lemon juice and stir.
Allow it to rest and store in glass sterilized jars.
