“My recipe source is the Turbana Corp. As written, the recipe calls for fruit cocktail ... BUT I like to use fresh fruit (when in season), buy a sml jar of cherries to garnish & only use fruit cocktail as a last resort. This dish works well as part of a brunch menu, luncheon dish or dessert & can be paired w/a cookie or sml serving of pound cake when used as a dessert. Enjoy!”
