Good Morning Everyone,

Hope you enjoy Edward's recipe. IT is sprinkling this morning. Should clear up later today and be nice for the next week or so.

I was supposed to take fruit salad to a church funeral dinner today. I saw this recipe and made it instead. I didn't have any cherries on hand, but I used a can of fruit cocktail in it's place. I also had some blackberry juice on hand and mixed a small bit of that in with the fruit juice. I added a small bit of blue berries out of the freezer also, just using up some of what I already had. I made 2 of these, one for the funeral family, and another for us here to home. It looks so good, and I really appreciate all of you sharing the recipe. I never use brown sugar in my cobblers or a casserole, but it looks and smells delicious. I did go ahead and make up some fresh table jam with the leftover blackberry juice and the brown sugar and corn starch to thicken, since I had them out on the counter already. My husband loved it over his biscuits for breakfast, he thought the brown sugar added a great flavor to the jam. I enjoy all the posts. Thank you for helping me bless a grieving family today. God Bless.

I love anything with fruit. Thanks for this recipe.

My friend who I gave the Strawberry Bread recipe to, made it last week and used blueberries instead. She said it came out great.

Hello Jean, do you serve the fruit casserole with smoked or with cooked ham?

Hi Gisa,
I called Jean and she said it doesn't matter which ham you cook the casserole with. They usually have it with smoked ham, but the last time it was baked in the oven.
