       Title: CURRIED FRUIT
  Categories: Fruit, Holiday, Usenet
       Yield: 8 servings
  
       5 lb Fruit (pears, peaches,
            -pineapple, apricot, etc.)
      12    Cherries
     3/4 c  Light brown sugar
       3 t  Curry powder
     1/3 c  Butter, melted
     3/4 c  Almonds (blanched),
            -slivered
  
   Add sugar and curry powder to melted butter and mix well.  Drain all fruit
   well.  Arrange fruit and nuts in layers in casserole dish.  There should be
   enough fruit to fill the dish about three-quarters full.  Pour butter
   mixture over fruit.
   
   Bake at 325 degrees F. for one hour.    Refrigerate overnight.  Reheat at
   350 degrees F. until hot before serving (about 10-15 minutes).
   
   NOTES:
   
   *  Baked fruit with curry sauce and nuts -- This dish can be served as a
   desert, alone, or on top of ice cream or pound cake (or both!).  But, our
   favorite way of serving it is as a side dish at brunch on Christmas day. As
   long as I can remember, Mom has had this dish, along with an egg/cheese
   casserole, bacon and muffins for Christmas brunch.  It is especially easy
   since you make it a day ahead of time.  Yield:  Serves 8-12.
   
   *  I use standard American “curry powder”.  Any other that you want to use
   should be ok.  Adjust the amount of curry powder to your taste, or use
   cinnamon if you really don't like the flavor of curry.
   
   Use your imagination in choosing the fruits to go in it.  Cherries and
   almonds are a must, but the rest is up to you. We use canned fruit, but
   fresh would be good too.
   
   : Difficulty:  easy.
   : Time:  10 minutes preparation, 1 hour baking, overnight cooling.
   : Precision:  approximate measurement OK.
