2 liter water
500 g sugar
1 tsp cloves, whole
2 star anise
2 cinnamon sticks
2 one-liter jars
This is a base recipe for any preserved fruits- so if you have a whole bunch of different kinds you want to preserve- go for it!
You can sanitize a jar two ways; either boil them for a couple of minutes or put them in the oven on 100 degrees celcius for 10 minutes. I prefer the latter because you can sanitize many at a time and avoid burning issues.
