● 500 g dragon fruit
● 450 g sugar
● 100 g water
● juice of 1/2 lemon
Slice the fruit in 4, and carefully remove the skins.
Cut the peeled fruit in cubes, put them in a pot, add the sugar and leave for 2-3 hours for the fruit to release their juices.
After the 3 hours, add the water and boil for 10-15 minutes on medium heat until the syrup thickens.
Once the syrup is ready, add the lemon juice, stir and remove from the heat.
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.
Store in glass sterilized jars.
