Macedonia Di Frutta (Mixed Fresh Fruit)

Cuisine: Italian
Courses: Dessert
Serves: 6 people

Recipe Ingredients

1 1/2 cups 355mlOrange juice
1 cup 237mlWhite wine - * see note
1 teaspoon 5mlLemon peel - grated
1   Apple
1   Pear
1   Banana
2 lbs 908g / 32ozMixed fruit - ** see note
1/3 cup 65g / 2.3ozVanilla sugar
  Mint leaves - optional

Recipe Instructions

* A medium-sweet wine is most suitable.

** Seasonal fruits (strawberries, cherries, nectarines, mangoes, melon, Italian plums, seedless grapes, etc.)

Pour orange juice and wine into a large glass serving bowl and stir in lemon peel. Peel and core apple and pear, then cut them into small cubes. Slice the banana thin. Hold the fruit over the bowl and chop it on a plate so you don't lose any of the juices.

The larger fruits should be pitted, peeled and cubed. Cherries should be pitted and left whole. Stir the fruit into the liquid as soon as it is cut (the juices and wine will help retain the colors). Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours. The macedonia can be made the night before. Serve lightly chilled garnished with mint leaves.

Serves 6.

NOTES: If you use purple plums, add them at the last minute to prevent their color from changing the color of the other fruits.
