Melon also can be used, but only the harder inside above the rind, but this will be discussed later. The fruits should be ripe but still firm. Soft fruits such as strawberries and raspberries are generally not used as they tend to disintegrate during the prolonged soaking. The bitter in the peel is removed by putting the peel on in cold water, letting it come to a boil, and then by draining off, changing the water and starting over each time with cold water. The number of changes depends on the individual taste. The peel should be tender before it goes into the syrup.
