Ethnic Fruits Italian Low-fat/cal

Ingredients:

  • 2 c Apples; Note 1
  • 2 c Bananas; Note 1
  • 2 c Oranges; Note 1
  • 1/2 c Orange Marmalade; Low Sugar
  • 2 tb Orange Juice; Note 2

Directions:

Also called Macedonia di frutta fresca.
 
Note 1: Should be 6 Cups total of mixed fruits such as apples, pears, kiwis, bananas, grapes, tangerines and oranges
 
Note 2: Or 2 Tbsp maraschino or orange liqueur or dry white vermouth.
 
Aside from whole fruits, the most ubiquitous Italian dessert is the macedonia, a combination of cut fresh or dried fruits served as a salad. Dressed with sugar, or better yet jam or marmalade, and a splash of liqueur, wine or fruit juice, it is the best way to use up fruits that are not visually perfect.
 
Place fruits in a large serving bowl. In a small bowl, stir together marmalade and liqueur, vermouth or orange juice; gently stir into the fruits. Cover and refrigerate for 1 - 3 hrs before serving.
 
Serves 6
 
This was very good and quick to prepare.
