Delicious puree of fruit which is lovely with Champagne or a sprakling wine. Great for when you are drinking at a party for brunch or lunch as you are not drinking as much alcohol. I suppose the types of fruit you could use are endless with this recipe. It is alittle hard to estimate prep/cooking time as the recipe will explain. ;-)
