This is a great winter fruit recipe. It uses either canned fruit or fruit you have preserved in your freezer. It is very forgiving and any combination of fruits can be used. It is best if you use at least 2 cans of fruit as the sauce benefits from the canned fruit juice. Below is the combination I used last night.
Warm Vanilla Fruit
2 cans peach slices
1 can pear slices
2 c frozen pineapple chunck - slighly thawed
1 c frozen cherries - slightly thawed
Juice from fruits with water to equal 2 cups
1/2 c butter (can use less)
1/2 c sugar
2 tsp vanilla (I used my homemade vanilla)
In a saucepan, mix the juices with butter, sugar and vanilla until they boil. In a 9 x 13 pan, pour the fruit and cover with boiled sauce. Bake uncovered at 350 for one hour.
