I love this recipe because it's so forgiving! You can use any kind of fruit ... fresh is best, frozen is fine, and canned probably wouldn't hurt a bit! A little under ripe, a bit over ripe works. Sweet, sweet ... feel free to cut down on the sugar. And use any kind of juice you have on hand. Breakfast or brunch, afternoon tea or dessert, this is a WINNER no matter what season of the year!
