This fruit bowl will be wonderful served as a course for Christmas dinner. I made about 1/3 of the recipe to try it out; it was wonderful!! At this time I used canned pineapple but at Christmas I will use fresh, instead of out of season strawberries, I used blackberries out of the freezer with fresh cantaloupe and honedew balls. What a lovely combination, ginger, lime and honey!! compliments the fruit beautifully. Thanks for sharing Leta.
