Cut a cross at the end of each tamarillo

Put the wine, cinnamon, star anise, sugar and citrus in a pot and stir (to dissolve sugar) while bringing to the boil

Add tamarillos and poach for 10 to 15 minutes. Then remove from heat and leave to marinate in liquid for an hour or two or overnight to intensify flavour
