Homemade Fresh Fruit Salsa
- 2 fresh peaches 1 ¼ cup canned
- 1 ½ cup blackberries
- 1 cup pineapple chunks
- 3 kiwi fruits
- 2 cups strawberries about 12-15 whole berries
- ½ cup orange juice
- 6 tbsp. apple jelly
If canned fruits are available, ensure to drain the excess juice.
Slice the fruits into cubes about ½ inch square. If you cut them into smaller sizes, they may turn into slop.
Combine the fruits into a bowl and mix them carefully. Do not prolong the mixing or mix vigorously or the fruits might crush.
Get another bowl. Blend ½ cup of orange juice and 6 tbsp. of apple jelly.
Stir the jelly-juice mix until the jelly breaks down to little pieces.
Pour the mixture into the fruits and blend well until the fruits are well covered.
Keep the salsa in a refrigerator for 15 minutes or 1 day to give time for the flavors to mix well. If you let the dish sit there, the fruits naturally break down releasing juices that make fruit salsa delicious. Pair it with cinnamon chips.
Apple jelly and orange juice make this dish sweeter, but you can use some alternatives like:
• Powdered sugar
• Brown sugar
• Granulated sugar
• Sugar substitutes like sweet-n-low or stevia
• Agave nectar
• Other juice & jelly combinations
