  • ¼ cup firmly packed fresh basil leaves
  • 1 pineapple (900 g), quartered, sliced thinly
  • 6 kiwifruit (510 g), sliced thinly
  • ⅓ cup (80 ml) passionfruit pulp
  • 1 tbsp finely shredded fresh basil

Combine the water, rind, juice, sugar and basil leaves in medium frying pan; bring to the boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, 20 mins.
