Citrus of your choice – 6-8 Mayer lemons or 2 cups Kumquats, seeded and chopped, with residual juice.
1/2-2/3 cup sugar (as per the sweetness level of the Jackfruit)
1/4 teaspoon sea salt.
1 cup water

Place a clean steel plate in the freezer. (needed towards the end of the cooking process)
Combine the water and chopped Jackfruit in a heavy bottomed pan and bring to a boil. Decrease the heat, add the chopped Citrus pieces with the salt and allow the jackfruit mix to cook down at a medium-low heat until the mixture begins leaving the sides of the pan.

Sample the mix at this time and add sugar as needed, depending upon the sweetness level of the jackfruit).

Continue cooking until the mix resembles a gel like texture. to test for doneness,  drop a bit of the conserve onto the chilled plate and return the plate to the freezer for 5 minutes.
If the conserve ‘wrinkles’ when pushed to one side, Its ready. Spoon out into clean sterilized bottles and refrigerate.
