Thanks Eve, we really enjoyed this for 02/10/02 breaky!! I did make a couple of changes.I used fresh grapefruit sections, and left out the maraschino cherries, simply because we don't care for them. Also left out the 1/4 cup sugar (diabetic), it was wonderfull anyway, there is a lot of natural sweetness in the fruit juices and it was surprizingly sweet and nice thickened. Actuallly I think it would have been too sweet with the added sugar. We will do this one again!!
