Preserving any fruit

Hey, I bought some exotic fruits and me and my friends tried them but I still have lots left. I thought about jellying or turning them into jam but I don't know how to do it or even if it's possible to do it to any of them. Any advise?

Hi and welcome to Discuss Cooking. There are several ways to preserve fruit, depending on what it is. What do you have?

We're going to need more information, like what they are, how ripe are they, blemishes. You have to take all that into account when making jellies, jams and/or preserves.



You might be able to preserve some in alcohol too depending on what they are.

It's some really bizarre stuff like star fruit, guava, durian and some of this really smelly fruit called noni. Everything is frozen except the noni. the noni are in my fridge and are a little bruised.

I wouldn't take the durian out of the freezer yet, it REALLY stinks! In fact, being frozen at this point might be the best way to preserve everything. Guava could become jelly or jam, starfruit might slice and dehydrate well. A lady I know in Mexico grows morinda (noni) and makes and sells the juice, apparently it's supposed to have (scientifically unproven) health benefits.

I heard that about noni too. I think you can buy noni juice at places like GNC. I'll definantly try the guava jelly. I've made durian ice cream before which wasn't too bad. I've also dehydrated durian into chips but that was meh.
