seeds, cut fruit in half, remove seeds; cut or scoop out
sections. Pack fruit into containers. Cover with cold 40-
percent syrup (1 cup water or juice to 2/3 cup sugar) made
with excess fruit juice and water if needed. For better
quality, add 1/2 teaspoon ascorbic acid to a quart of
syrup. Leave 1/2 inch headspace. Seal, label and freeze.
