This is very tasty and simple to make. You could vary the fruit combinations to the fruit you have available. It is definitely a recipe I'll make again.

I LOVE this recipe!! The only changes I make----I use fresh pears and also add strawberries, blueberries, and grapes!! The combinations are endless. I especially enjoy using honey crisp apples. Thank you, Julianne Johnson!!!

It was in November of 2003 while I was pregnant with my first child and my nesting instincts were in full force that I first found this recipe. I am writing to say...it has been enthusiastically requested every fall since. I love this recipe!!
