Old Recipes...

A family favorite from the Colton, SD Methodist Church UMW Cookbook (church cookbooks for the WIN), from the pen of the late Mildred Loomis. From the courier font typed mimeograph production, I'd guess this book with Mildred's contribution rolled out no later than the late 1960's or early 1970's - and I could easily believe greater age.

I'm a carnivore, not an omnivore, but am assured that for those that *like* fruit....that this is the's certainly been on our family holiday tables since back then...

Fruit Salad (Mildred Loomis, Colton, SD)

7 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp flour
2 eggs (slightly beaten)
small jar maraschino cherries
No. 2 can chunk pineapple
1 tsp butter
1 tsp prepared mustard
2 banana's

Drain the juice from the pineapple, combine with the sugar, flour, eggs, mustard, and butter. Cook until thick; Cool. Add pineapple, cut up marshmallow, sliced banana's, and maraschino cherries.
