- 100 g of cane sugar
- 100 ml of water
- 2x cloves,
- 1 whole cinnamon,
- 1 star anise

Clean the darts. Cut them in halves, you don’t have to get rid of the seeds the way it’s done, for example, when making jam. Pour them into a large jar.
Drizzle with brandy and add spices. Close the glass and leave at room temperature in the dark.
After 3 weeks of maceration, pour the mixture over a cloth.
