Fresh Fruit, Chopped!

Whenever I ask Dear One for a suggestion, I should be prepared to accept his suggestion...  This time I did it.  He suggested fruit cup.  This was very easy. I even learned about using Fruit Fresh to keep the fruit from browning prior to ingestion!

1 peach
1 nectarine
3 apples
2 bananas
one half cup red raspberies
1 15-ounce can mandarin oranges, undrained

After washing the peach, nectarine, and apples, I peeled the peach then removed the pit and chopped in rather finely.  The apples were cored and chopped and the nectarine was pitted and chopped.  The bananas were skinned and cut in half lengthwise then sliced crosswise. They were all soaked in Fruit Fresh for fifteen or twenty minute.  After draining, these fruits were put in a jar and covered and refrigerated overnight with some trepidation as I did not know if they truly would not turn brown. In the morning they were NOT brown so they were put into a large bowl and the mandarin oranges and raspberries were added and gently stirred just enough to disperse the red and orange fruit to make the dish look nice.  They were then put into a beautiful cut-glass serving bowl and put out with cups and spoons for serving.

Nearly all the fruit was consumed.  Success.
