SPICED FRUIT BOWL

2 cinnamon sticks
2 cups unsweetened apple juice
1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 pear, cored and cut into thin strips
1 red apple, cored and cut into thin strips
1 peach, peeled, pitted and cut into thin strips
1/2 cup pitted fresh cherries
1 cup fresh strawberries, hulled

In a saucepan over medium-high heat, bring the cinnamon sticks and apple juice to a boil; cook 10 minutes, remove from heat and allow to cool.  Remove and discard cinnamon sticks. Stir in the lemon juice.  Add the pear strips, apple strips, peach strips, and cherries to the juice.  Gently stir to coat the fruit and refrigerate to chill.  (May be chilled as long as all day or overnight.) Before serving, gently stir in the strawberries.

Yield: 4 servings

Note: This recipe works best with fresh fruit.  If you do not have fresh fruit, use unsweetened frozen fruit.
