    Fruit Salad

    I came down with stomach problems back before the holidays. In a search for a solution to my ailment, I started eating a lot of fruit (and yogurt). This is kind of a variation of something my sister in law used to make. It's taken a few tries to get this part of my diet to where I like. Mostly taste, but also texture. Fresh fruit ingredients would be best, but prep work for the amount I'm eating would be time and effort prohibitive. This is what I've settled on for now. I figured I'd get tired of eating this stuff, but it's going on three months and I like it, a lot. I eat a nice size bowl for breakfast and then one or two more after meals during the day. I've been making a big covered serving bowl every other day lately. It's not real cheap. The following is my settled recipe for now. If anyone has other suggestions, I'll listen.

    All cans are 14 oz

    Three cans of Mandarin oranges
    Two cans of sliced peaches
    One can apricot halves
    Two and a half cups of red grapes
    One pound of frozen strawberries
    Two cups of Orange Juice
    One cup of Limon Juice concentrate

    I've tried Mango, Pineapple, Apples, bananas, and cherries and didn't like the textures.

    It's a lot of fructose to be eating and I've been having to get up at night three or four times to pee. My fasting blood glucose is up to 112 from under 100 before. Not real bad.

    Thank you Txkstew!

    This sounds delicious!

    I can almost taste it and as my late mother inlaw from Tn. would say, "I've had my mouth set for some gooood fruit salad!".

    Been craving it actually and am going to try this recipe out!

    It just looks so refreshing. V

    I quit making this concoction some months back, but I sure miss having it. The recipe cost about $10 a batch and I only get to eat one or two bowls before it's all gone. I'd make a batch in the afternoon, and the next morning it's almost all gone. I've threatened death to all my kids (adults) and their friends if they don't keep their grubby hands off my stuff. It does no good. So now no one gets any!

    I use the heavy syrup from the peaches and apricots, but drain the thin syrup from the mandarin oranges.
