Fruit Cups

If you end up making fresh squeezed orange juice, you will have a lot of orange shells left. Since we love fruit salad, I figured it would make nice bowls. Also, my children thought they made nice cups. I loved this recipe. You can use any fruit that you like. I used berries, bananas, oranges, and grapes. I love berries as you can see. Melons would work just as great.
Fruit Cups
4 oranges
2 cups fruit
1/4 cup sugar

  1. Slice the oranges in half. Scope out the orange sections to create a smooth bowl with the outer rind/peel/shell of the orange.Test each bowl to make sure it will stand with the open end up. If not, slice off a thin part of the bottom of the orange to make it flat. Be careful not to poke a hole in the bottom.
  2. Chop the fruit into bit size pieces. (add the orange sections to the fruit.)
  3. In a small bowl, combine 1 cup of fruit with the sugar. Set aside for about 15 minutes.
  4. Combine the macerated fruit with the 1 cup of fruit.
  5. Fill the orange bowls with the fruit.
  6. Serve immediately or allow to chill for about 1 hour.

One year ago........................I made Pizza Sauce.
Did you already know..........
-The subsections of a blackberry and a raspberry is called a drupelet.
-A white drupelet on a blackberry or raspberry is due to the fruit being scalded by the sun. It is still usable.
-A blackberry has about 90 seeds (drupelets) per a berry.
