I meant to post this earlier, hope it can still be a good reference for anyone doing a fruit salad this Thanksgiving or for Christmas.
To make this jolly good fruit salad, you would need:
1 Chinese Pear, cored and cut into wedges then halves
1 Apple, cored and sliced thin
2 Navel Oranges, use a small sharp knife to cut off the skin then cut into small pieces, they have less sugar than canned mandarin oranges
1 Organic Pineapple, peeled, cut out the eyelets, remove the core and cut into small wedges
1 Pomegranate, cut into half, check out this link on how to get the seeds out http://lifehacker.com/5895852/deseed-a-pomegranate-in-10-seconds-using-a-wooden-spoon
Several splashes of lemon juice to keep the apple slices from turning brown. This also helps to preserve the fruits longer too
1 splash of Rice Vinegar used for making sushi rice
1 – 2 teaspoons of Sugar (optional)
Several shakes of Cinnamon Powder
Mix everything well in a big mixing bowl, the liquid collected below the bowl is so good even my baby boy likes it after giving him a tiny bit just for a taste.
Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Holidays everybody!
