Great way to use not-so-fresh leftover fruit from that huge party tray---or fruit on the party tray that wasn't quite ripe. Your children won't even know they are eating melon and kiwi!
12-14 (depending on how served)
2 cups cantaloupe melon
2 cups honeydew melon
2 peeled kiwi
1 cup seedless grapes
1 cup hulled strawberries
½ cup dark- brown sugar (or use Stevia)
1 cup red wine (or 1 cup of apple juice)
1 cinnamon stick

Place all ingredients in a large pot, and bring to simmer. Stir from time to time so mix won't burn. Simmer until all fruits are soft---may take longer for melon that isn't quite ripe to reach this point. Add a little more liquid if necessary. Mixture will be thick. Let cool down so you can handle it. Pour mixture into Cuisinart food processor and pulse in batches until fruits are indistinguishable from each other. Serve warm on waffles, toasted English muffins; serve cold over ice cream, rice pudding. Or just eat a ½ cup when you want something warm and sweet on a cold day!
