¼ cup orange juice
¼ cup lime juice
¼ cup golden syrup
2 stalks lemongrass, thinly sliced
3 whole star anise
Put all the syrup ingredients in a saucepan over a medium heat and bring to the boil, stirring to dissolve the golden syrup. Simmer for 2 minutes then cool, cover and chill.
When ready to serve, strain the syrup, discarding the lemongrass but leaving in the star anise and pour over the fruit. Let the fruit salad sit for 20 minutes for the fruit to release some of their juices and mingle with the syrup. Makes ¾ cup of syrup
