6 June 1957 “A Can Of Fruit Cocktail”

fruitcocktail2 I am always intrigued by the ‘made from can’ recipes I find in my various magazines. This one caught my eye both by the color and the variety of items made from a simple can of fruit cocktail.

fruitcocktail1Certainly the can of fruit cocktail is often overlooked by modern people at the local grocery store. Perhaps they still exist simply for the ‘older set’ but I think these recipes actually sound quite lovely, especially the ice cream and the pork skillet.

I have provided the recipe cards here for you to print out and put in your own recipe box or book. I even copied over the little colored images of the product onto the card, so if you refer to it later you will know what the heck a ‘fruit shrub’ is. I hope you enjoy them and let me know if any of you make them. I am going to be trying the shrub and the ice cream this summer as well as the pork skillet.
