Expert Tips

If you prefer, use 3 cans of apricot halves, sliced peaches or sliced pears with the pineapple and cherries.

Curried fruit has many uses; you might be surprised how often you make it. It is a delicious side dish with any type of meat-pork, lamb, ham, turkey or chicken. Use it to top pancakes or waffles at your next weekend breakfast. For dessert, top bowls of chilled curried fruit with plain yogurt and a sprinkle of toasted coconut.

Enhance the curry flavor and the tender fruit by stirring 1/2 cup toasted slivered almonds into the curried fruit before serving, or sprinkle them on top.
