Somebody gave my mom this recipe back in the 1950's, I believe. She made it every Christmas and everyone we knew loved it because it didn't have that "weird stuff" in it. Now, when I make it, I mold it in those small loaf pans and I get the same reaction! Hope you enjoy it as much as we always have!! Cooking time is refrigeration time. We use red and green cherries and yellow (or natural) pineapple
