Fresh Fruit Bowl Recipe
"THE CROWINING GLORY of my aunt's breakfast table was this delightful bowl of fresh fruit. The glorious colors provided the perfect accent to her antique dishes and white linen tablecloth. Bite-sized pieces of melon were prepared the night before, slightly sweetened with corn syrup, and chilled in the icebox. The other fruits were added just prior to serving, making this dish a light, colorful complement to our breakfast."
