Notes

Smart Shopping Tips:
  • Watch the sugar content of canned fruit. Avoid cans with “syrup” on the label. Instead, look for fruit packed in 100% juice.
  • Fresh pineapple may be used instead of canned. Ripe pineapple will smell sweet at the stem end and have a yellow color. It should have green, healthy leaves and be firm yet give slightly when squeezed.
Cooking & Serving Tips:
  • Top with chopped, toasted pecans for a nutty crunch.
  • Any fresh fruit can be used. Try chunks of melon or berries.
  • Garnish with a maraschino cherry, strawberry or sprig of mint.
