100 g caster sugar
½ teacup water
1 bunch pineapple mint, finely chopped, optional
1 kg mixed fruit, such as melon, pineapple, green seedless grapes, lychees, Granny Smith apples, strawberries, blueberries or cherries
Place the sugar and a teacup of water in a saucepan and heat up. Stir until the sugar dissolves. For a fuller flavour, add half a bunch of whole pineapple mint stems to the hot syrup and leave to infuse until cool.
When the syrup has cooled down, remove the stems and add the peeled and chopped fruit. Chill well and add half a bunch of picked pineapple mint leaves.

BUYING SUSTAINABLY SOURCED FISH
Buying sustainably sourced fish means buying fish that has been caught without endangering the levels of fish stocks and with the protection of the environment in mind. Wild fish caught in areas where stocks are plentiful are sustainably sourced, as are farmed fish that are reared on farms proven to cause no harm to surrounding seas and shores.
When buying either wild or farmed fish, ask whether it is sustainably sourced. If you're unable to obtain this information, don't be afraid to shop elsewhere – only by shopping sustainably can we be sure that the fantastic selection of fish we enjoy today will be around for future generations.
