Winter Spiced Fruit

Although we prefer to serve fresh and locally grown fruit at Lookout Point, it’s just not possible in the winter.  Pretty and tasty, this recipe happily serves a satisfied crowd at the inn.  Winter Spiced Fruit keeps in the fridge for 7 days, so it’s easy to make ahead.


2  15 ounce can pineapple chunks, drained and liquid reserved
1  15 ounce can pineapple tidbits, drained and liquid reserved
3  15 ounce can sliced pears, drained and 1/2 liquid reserved
3  15 ounce can sliced peaches, drained and liquid reserved
1/2 cup orange juice
1 cup sugar
1  3 oz package cherry gelatin
1/2 cup cider vinegar
2 whole cinnamon sticks
8 whole cloves
Whipped cream for garnish
Pomegranates for garnish


In large pot, mix all juices with sugar, gelatin, cider vinegar, cinnamon sticks, and cloves.  Simmer for 30 minutes.  Remove spices, and cool to room temperature. Pour over fruit, and refrigerate up to one week.

Serve in fruit compote glasses or martini glasses, topped with a dollop of whipped cream and sprinkle with pomegranates for added color splash.  

Serves 16-20
