Anise Fruit Salad

 Anise Fruit Salad
The thing I like best about fruit salad is you can change the ingredients based on what fruits are in season. Here, a subtle anise flavor highlights a bounty of fresh fruit.
12-14 ServingsPrep: 30 min. + chilling

Ingredients

  • 2 cups water
  • 1-1/2 cups sugar
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon aniseed
  • 6 cups cubed honeydew
  • 4 cups cubed fresh pineapple
  • 2-1/2 cups cubed cantaloupe
  • 2 cups seedless green grapes
  • 2 cups seedless red grapes
  • 2 cups cubed orange sections
  • 1 cup sliced fresh strawberries
  • 1 medium firm banana, sliced
  • 2 kiwifruit, peeled and sliced

Directions

  • In a saucepan over medium-high heat, combine water, sugar, lemon
  • juice and aniseed; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium; cook,
  • uncovered, for 40 minutes or until mixture is slightly thickened and
  • reduced by one-third (about 1-1/2 cups). Remove from the heat; cover
