      This tasted nasty to me. I'm not sure why. My only suggestion to anyone who is going to try it is this: Toss just a little of the fruit with the glaze until you try it. Better to throw out a little fruit than all of it - it's just to expensive to waste. My friend Herkimer has some but hasn't tried it yet - I'll update my thoughts if need be. As it stands right now - I won't be fixing it again.

      This was a nice change for a fresh fruit salad and I think it turned out quite well. I used mandarin oranges, pineapple chunks, kiwi and banana. I made a 1/2 recipe and only used enough fruit for 4 servings.

      I actually found the sauce fairly thick - perhaps UK cornflour has a different consistency. To save time (and money!) I use a mixture of fresh and tinned fruit (tinned fruit MUST be in juice, not syrup!). I find it keep s well in the fridge for a couple of days - by which time its all gone!!
