Make It

  • Prepare glaze first so it can be cooling while you prepare the fruit.
  • In a small saucepan, combine sugar, water, and honey. Grate the zest from the two lemons or limes. Add the zest to the pan. Juice one of the lemons or limes, being careful to get all the juice you can squeeze from it-if the lemon or lime is small, then go ahead and juice the second one also. Add the juice to the pan.
  • Bring the mixture to a rolling boil over medium high heat. As soon as the mixture boils up to the point where it almost boils over, remove from heat and cool to room temperature. Strain the mixture into a container or jar. The syrup will be thin, but this is okay. It will coat the fruit easily.
  • Add all fruit to a large serving bowl. Start by pouring 1/2 cup glaze onto fruit and toss. Add more glaze as desired. Cover and refrigerate Fruit Medley until ready to serve.

Notes

You can use any combination of fruit that is in season, such as citrus fruits in colder months. Also, you can use pre-prepared fresh fruits if you don't have time to prepare them from their natural state. I have gotten many requests for this recipe so I hope you will enjoy it. The glaze adds a little sweetness to the fruit but isn't heavy and helps to bring all the flavors together nicely. Also, this syrup glaze recipe makes more than enough for one recipe so you can refrigerate leftover glaze to use another time. Another use for the syrup glaze is that you can brush the glaze over layer cakes before frosting to give them a hint of lemon flavor and also to keep the layers moist so they won't dry out. This technique is used by professional cake decorators and is one of their secrets for delicious cakes.
