This has to be a family classic and great for holidays and a family get together. I remember eating this as a child and thought it was so good, I couldn’t wait to finish dinner to get some of this dessert.
- 5 medium bananas
- 2 (15 oz) cans fruit cocktail
- 1 medium apple
- 1 (15 oz) can pear halves
- 1/2 cup pecans
- 1 (11 oz) can mandarin orange
- 1 (15 oz) can peaches
- 2 (8 oz) cans crushed pineapple
- 1 (10 oz) jar maraschino cherries
- 2 (14 oz) cans sweetened condensed milk
Slice bananas into bite size slices. Peel apple and cut into bite size pieces.
Drain fruit cocktail, oranges, and pineapple. Drain pears and peaches and slice.
Combine all fruits into a bowl and mix with the 2 cans of the sweetened condensed milk.
Halve as many cherries as you want and add to the "pot"
Then add some of the maraschino juice to make it pink or use a pack of Kool Aid to change the color. Refrigerate immediately and stir before serving.
