GLAZED FRUIT SALAD
pineapple, chunks, reserve all the juice
red seedless grapes
small jar maraschino cherries, drained
any other fruit you would like to add
orange marmalade or apricot preserves
Drain pineapple, reserve all juice.
In a small bowl, combine all your fruit. I always squirt some lemon juice over my bananas before adding so they don't get brown and yucky looking. Set aside.
In a small saucepan, combine the sugar, cornstarch, and reserved pineapple juice. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer till thickened. Remove from heat and add the marmalade or preserves and the lemon juice.
Let cool for a couple of minutes, then pour the glaze over your fruit and toss gently to coat. Keep in the fridge. It won't last long!!
This recipe is from Just A Pinch of which I am a member. It was posted by a Mrs. Martin with this note:
I found this recipe in a 1950s reminisce magazine. I tweaked it by adding orange marmalade, it called for apricot preserves but you can use whatever preserves you like!!
