Recipe: Fruit Cocktail

  • 2 tart apples 1 teaspoon lemon juice

Cut apples and bananas in small cubes; remove pith and seeds from oranges, cut pulp in small pieces, and add[ with juice to apples and bananas; add lemon juice and sugar, place in a shallow dish, and put directly on ice for ten minutes to chill; serve in glasses, and garnish with a preserved Cranberry, or a spoonful of Mock Bar-le-Duc. Peeled Tokay or Malaga grapes and a little grated pineapple may be added to advantage.
