Select under-ripe fruit. Wash and pick over, but do not pare or seed. Boil until soft. Mash and pour into jelly bag to drip. Do not squeeze. Take equal measures of sugar and juice, let juice boil 5 minutes, add sugar and boil until a drop jells on a cold plate. Skim and turn into hot glasses, cover and keep in a cool, dry place. Reserve the pulp, strain through sieve, sugar to taste and use as sauce.
