75 Ackees (with seeds optional)
1.5 Liter of boiled Water
1 ¼ Cup Granulated Sugar (Brown Sugar)
3 drops of Vanilla Essence
1 Sprig of Mint
1 piece of ginger

1 Apple (optional)


Take skins off Ackees and place in a container. If desirous of using the seeds, using a nut cracker crush Ackees completely.

Bring 1.5 liter of water to boil.

Pour boiling water over Ackee in container.

Allow to stand for at least 2 hours for Ackee flavor to be drawn from the fruit. Also using a crusher, crush Ackees to release more of the Ackee flavor. (For home use hands are perfect for doing this.)

Add to this liquid: Vanilla Essence, Sprig of Mint, piece of peeled Ginger, Cinnamon, and 1 chopped apple.

Place in Blender: – blend and liquify.

Strain again.
