● 500 g tamarillo fruit
● 500 g sugar
● 50 g water
● juice of 1 lemon
Put water in a pot and bring to a boil.
Once the water starts to boil, add the fruit and boil for 2 minutes.
Using a slotted spoon, remove the fruit and put in a bowl with cold water.
Using a sharp knife, slice the tip of the fruit and peel.
Slice the fruit in half and using a spoon, carefully remove the seeds.
In a large pot, put the water and the sugar and boil on medium until the sugar has dissolved.
Once the sugar has dissolved add the fruit and the lemon juice and continue boiling until the syrup thickens, about 20-25 minutes.
More or less time may be needed, depending on the quantity of the fruit and the syrup.
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.
