They peeled pretty easily after this although it's a bit of a messy job. Then they needed chopping up.
I soon realised that I should have concentrated on a bit more zealous chopping to make smaller pieces.
Don't you just want to pick a slice out?
The addition of lemon juice to the water when simmering them helped the lack of pectin in the fruit. They I cooked them for a good 30 minutes. It was at this stage that I realised I should have made smaller pieces so I remedied this by using a hand blender until there were just a few lumps left. Then it was time to add the sugar. I used as the recipe suggested sugar with added pectin for the same reason as adding lemon juice.
It set easily with these additions and I am pretty pleased with the result. It certainly tastes good.
