  2. pour the sugar and water into a pan on medium heat and stir until the sugar crystals have dissolved
  3. mix the cooled sugar syrup with the fruit paste and put into the freezer
  4. take out every 15 minutes and give it a good stir – repeat for about 2 hours until it’s got a crystalline texture
