CURRIED-FRUIT - Baked fruit with curry sauce and nuts

     This dish can be served as a desert, alone, or on top of ice
     cream or pound cake (or both!). But, our favorite way of
     serving it is as a side dish at brunch on Christmas day. As
     long as I can remember, Mom has had this dish, along with an
     egg/cheese casserole, bacon, and muffins for Christmas
     brunch.  It is especially easy since you make it a day ahead
     of time.

INGREDIENTS (Serves 8-12)
     4-5 lb    fruit (pears, peaches, pineapple, apricot, etc.)
     12        cherries
     3/4 cup   light brown sugar
     3 tsp     curry powder
     1/3 cup   melted butter
     3/4 cup   blanched, slivered almonds

          (1)  Add sugar and curry powder to melted butter and
               mix well.

          (2)  Drain all fruit well. Arrange fruit and nuts in
               layers in casserole dish. There should be enough
               fruit to fill the dish about three-quarters full.

          (3)  Pour butter mixture over fruit.

          (4)  Bake at 325 deg. F for one hour.

          (5)  Refrigerate overnight. Reheat at 350 deg. F until
               hot before serving (about 10-15 minutes).

     I use standard American "curry powder". Any other that you
     want to use should be ok. Adjust the amount of curry powder
     to your taste, or use cinnamon if you really don't like the
     flavor of curry.

     Use your imagination in choosing the fruits to go in it.
     Cherries and almonds are a must, but the rest is up to you.
     We use canned fruit, but fresh would be good too.

     Difficulty: easy.  Time: 10 minutes preparation, 1 hour bak-
     ing, overnight cooling.  Precision: approximate measurement
