Heaps of fruit again, it loves a good bit of rain to start it off. Sorry for sideways photo.

Just found a recipe where you wash the whole fruit, put them in a saucepan with enough water to cover, then boil for 20 mins and mash with a potato masher, strain and boil a little longer and then add sugar to clean puree and bottle.   

Another way is to put an amount in blender and blend and strain and keep juice, serve with ice. Might give it a try.

Fabulous Christa,  this is a beautiful tree, can't wait to try these, have you decided what you will make with them yet. My Yellow Fruited this year but all the fruits dried out in the heat before they came to maturity.

Oh my gosh.  I wish I could get one of these to survive at my place.
