Fresh fruit salad

3 oz / 80 g sugar
juice of half a lemon
selection of 4 to 6 fruits, e.g:

grapes (green or black)

Dissolve the sugar in 300 ml of water over a gentle heat, bring to the boil and boil for 5 minutes. Cool, and add the lemon juice.

Prepare the fruits:
quarter, core and slice the apples
peel and segment the oranges
slice the bananas
halve and seed the grapes
peel and segment the peaches
scoop orbs out of the lemon with a small scoop (1 in)

Put each fruit into the syrup as it is ready

Mix them all together and if possible leave to stand for 2-3 hours to allow the flavours to blend.

The fruitsalad will keep up to 3 days, but the banana needs replacing every day.
