Holiday Fruit Side Dish

July 28, 2016

This delicious, comforting, healthy side dish is a welcome addition to any holiday meal. It's so easy to prepare & so yummy, that you'll want to serve it all year round. I created this dish in the early 1970's when I cooked my very first Thanksgiving meal & I've been serving it ever since. No matter who I invited over for the holidays, they always asked me if I was going to serve this, and of course I said yes!

Serves 6 to 8

Ingredients

1 - 20 oz can pineapple slices in juice, not syrup (drained)

1 - 15oz can cling peach slices in juice, not syrup (drained)

1 - 15oz can pear halves in juice, not syrup (drained & sliced in half)

Optional: 2 greenish yellow, firm bananas (sliced thick)

1/4 cup light brown sugar, loosely packed

1 tsp Homemade Curry Powder (see recipe in the Herbs, Spices & seasonings category), do not use store bought curry powder

1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

1/2 tsp freshly ground nutmeg (see Tip# 2)

Butter, approximately 1 Tblsp

Directions

1 Preheat oven to 350°

2 Arrange the fruit, in the order listed, in a 13 x 9 x 2 glass baking dish.

3 In a small bowl; mix the sugar, curry, cinnamon & nutmeg. Sprinkle evenly over the fruit & dot with bits of butter.

4 Bake, uncovered, for 25 minutes & serve hot.

Tips & Suggestions

1 Save the fruit juice from all the cans, in small containers. Refrigerate or freeze to utilize in other recipes or smoothies, drink it straight or get creative & make a holiday cocktail with it.

2 In any recipe that calls for nutmeg, I always suggest using fresh grated nutmeg & not the store bought variety. The aroma & taste of fresh grated nutmeg is beyond compare!

  1. My grandson would be over the moon at seeing this much fruit in one place. And what a simple, yet company-friendly recipe.

  2. This sounds so good. I love all things curry but I would have never thought to add it to fruit! I’m definitely going to give this a try.

  3. This is the perfect recipe for the upcoming holidays. Fruit salads are a hit in my household, so this side dish version is great.
