Spiced Syrup:

1/4 cup Mandarin juice

1 teaspoon whole cloves

3 whole star anise

Two 2-inch cinnamon sticks


  1. For the fruit salad: Combine the raspberries, kumquats, oranges, pomelo, lychees and pineapple in a medium serving bowl. Chill, covered, in the fridge. 
  2. For the spiced syrup: In a small saute pan over medium heat, combine the Mandarin juice, maple syrup, cloves, star anise and cinnamon sticks. Remove from the heat and leave to cool and let the flavors infuse.
