If you can slice fruit and control how much fluid comes out of the bottle, you have the necessary cooking skills to make fruit grenadine.
Dampen the fruit in this bowl with some grenadine and viola! Fruit grenadine.
We hesitate to call fruit grenadine — that is, fruit soaked with grenadine — a dish per se, but it’s another way to provide a healthy food option and introduce a dollop of alcohol into the evening festivities without creating a hazard.
10 cups prepared fruit—fresh, frozen, or canned in its own juice—cut into bite-size pieces
1 12-ounce bottle grenadine*
Place fruit in serving bowl. Add enough grenadine to moisten fruit thoroughly. Chill. Serves 10-15.
* Grenadine is usually found in the mixed-drink sections of grocery stores.
