Empty contents into medium-sized pot and cover with 3 cups of filtered water. Bring to a boil, cover, then reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes. Uncover, strain pulp, then return the liquid back to the pot. Continue to simmer, uncovered, for another 30 to 60 minutes, or until desired thickness is achieved. Allow to cool then add a sweetener of choice such as local, raw honey (local honey has amazing health benefits!).
