  • Peel the fruit thinly and cut the rind into thin, thick shreds.
  • Halve each piece of the fruit and squeeze out the juice, reserving any pits and the white pith.
  • Pour the juice into a 2.5 litres bowl. Put the pips and pith in a piece of cotton cloth, tie securely and add to the bowl of juice.
  • Add 1½ cups of the boiling water, cover and leave to stand for about 1 hour.
  • Pour in the remaining water, then cover the bowl with the plastic wrap and slit it to allow steam to escape. Cook on Full for about 30 minutes.
  • Uncover and stir in the sugar with molasses. Cook, uncovered, on Full for 8 - 10 minutes, stirring at least 3 - 4 times or until the sugar dissolves.
  • Return to the microwave and continue to cook, uncovered, for a further 30 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes or until setting point is reached.
