Fruit Cup

Almost any combination of fruits, fresh or canned or both may be used to make a delicious fruit cup. Here are some suggested combinations.

  1. Bananas, seedless white grapes, diced peeled oranges
  2. Bananas, straweberries, canned sliced peaches
  3. Strawberries, fresh pineapple, bananas
  4. Fresh peaches, raspberries
  5. Oranges, bananas, diced raw apple

When canned fruit is used, a little lemon juice added to the juice gives a pleasing tartness. Maraschino cherries are always an attractive addition, one to a serving often being sufficient. A small amount of juice from the cherries adds color as well as flavor. If the fruits used are not sufficiently juicy, orange juice or left-over canned fruit juice may be added. Moist-pack grated coconut, or unsalted nuts like pecans and walnuts, are a nice addition to the fruit cup, and the cup may be topped with a little whipped cream if desired.
