Great Fruit Platter for any occasion.
Whether you are planning a fancy reception or a casual get-together, use fruit to make a stunning and edible centerpiece. In some cases, the centerpiece can also serve as dessert.
2-1/4 cups fresh or frozen raspberries, rinsed or partially thawed, if frozen
2 tablespoons orange liqueur or fresh orange juice
1 3-pound fresh pineapple, peeled, cored, quartered lengthwise and cut crosswise into thin slices
2 navel oranges, peeled and sliced crosswise into thin slices
6 kiwi fruit, peeled and thinly sliced
In a food process or blender, combine raspberries and orange liqueur. Puree until smooth. Cover and chill until ready to serve. On a large platter, overlap slices of each fruit, starting with pineapple at each end of the platter and orange slices down the middle. Fill in the remaining area with kiwi slices. Cover and chill until ready to serve. To serve, drizzle raspberry sauce over fruit.

|Are you are buying Organic or GMO Fruit?|
|How to use Fruit Labels to know when you are buying Organic or GMO Fruit. As much as we may dislike them, the stickers or labels attached to fruit speed up the scanning process at checkout. Cashiers no longer need to distinguish a Fuji apple from a Gala apple, a prickly pear from a horned melon, or a grapefruit from an ugli fruit. They simply key in the PLU code - the price lookup number printed on the sticker - and the market's computerized cash register identifies the fruit by its PLU. The numbers also enable retailers to track how well individual varieties are selling. For conventionally grown fruit, the PLU code on the sticker consists of four numbers. Organically grown fruit has a five-numeral PLU prefaced by the number 9. Genetically engineered fruit has a five-numeral PLU prefaced by the number 8. So, a conventionally grown banana would be 4011, an organic banana would be 94011, and a genetically engineered banana would be 84011.|

|Jo's Award Winning Butter Tarts|
Description: This is a slighly altered version of a traditional butter tart. The original recipe called for corn syrup, but agave is a healthier choice.
While agave (pronounced ah-GAH-vay) is best recognized as the plant from which tequila is made, it has also been used for thousands of years as an ingredient in food. The nectar made from the plant is known in Mexico as aguamiel, or "honey water."
The Aztecs prized the agave as a gift from the gods and used the liquid from its core to flavor foods and drinks. Now, due to increasing awareness of agave nectar's many beneficial properties, it is becoming the preferred sweetener of health conscious consumers, doctors, and natural foods cooks alike.
