This is a great dish to serve for a holiday party. You can make it a day or two ahead of time and then stick it in to bake right before the party. It will make your house smell delicious. You can use this all the way from a holiday brunch to an evening party.
Hot Spicy Fruit
1 (15-16oz.) can pear halves
1 (15-16oz.) can peach halves
1 (15-16oz.) apricot halves
1 (20oz.) can pineapple chunks
1 (16oz.) can bing cherries
1 (11oz.) can mandarin oranges
1/3 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup brown sugar
1-2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice (if you don’t have that use 1/2 tsp. cinnamon, 1/4 tsp. nutmeg and 1/8 tsp.ginger and cloves each)
1/2 cup sliced almonds
Drain fruit well and place in a greased 9×13 pan or casserole dish. Mix brown sugar, pumpkin spice and butter. Pour over fruit. Sprinkle with almonds. Cover and refrigerate until serving day. Bake uncovered at 350° for 40-45 minutes.
You can add or take away fruit as needed. For example, if you find bing cherries are too expensive, then use an extra can of peaches instead.

Sounds yummy licious. How does one eat this? Over pork? As a side dish? With cake?
You eat it with all of those things. It is especially good with pork but you can also eat it with chicken, turkey as a side dish for a meal or as a dessert with cookies.
All that fruit sounds good. Healthy too.
Hi Bea hope you are doing better. I have been watching you guys getting lambasted with all these storms.Just got your letter. : )
