Macedonia di Frutta - Macerated Fruits
The basis for this recipe came from Marcella Hazan's The Classic Italian Cookbook.
For 8 or more
1 Cup freshly squeezed orange juice
Grated peel of 1 lemon
2-3 tbl freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/2 cup white wine (If you don't have it, increase the OJ to 1 1/2 cups)
1 1/2 lbs of assorted other fruits
6 tbl - 1/2 cup sugar, to taste
1/2 cup maraschino liqueur (or use the juice from maraschino cherries or Grenadine liqueur)
Peel, seed, slice/chop all the fruits into bite-size pieces. As you prepare the fruit, add it to the orange and lemon juices so that it won't turn brown. Mix all together. Cover and refrigerate at least 4 hours or even overnight. Mix well before serving.
