1 can (33 oz) peach halves,
1 can (15 1/2 oz) pineapple slices
1 jar (4 oz) maraschino
1 cherries with
1 stems drained
1 cup granulated sugar
In a one-quart jar, pack peach halves, pineapple slices and cherries
in layers adding about 1/4 cup sugar with each layer until the fruit
reaches the neck of the jar. Pour in enough brandy to cover, stir and
seal tightly. Note: As fruit is removed, add equal amounts of fruit
and sugar to the jar and enough brandy to cover. Many recipes do not
call for the addition of more brandy but.... caution adding two cups
of fruit and two cups of sugar no more often than every two weeks

Food Tips of the Week
In deciding on a meal plan, it is essential to also make sure you cut down your ingestion of refined carbohydrate, fat and salt.
Some reduced carb diet pointers:
* Food labels can be misleading
Don't trust food labeling that boasts to be 'low carb' - check the real nutritional information on the rear of the tin or package. Quite a few are only slightly less and in some cases still greater than a competitors standard brand. In addition, beware of 'low sugar' and 'low fat' labels - 'low sugar' doesn't always mean 'low carb' - usually the carbs are just the same.
* Use soya flour or soy baking mix.
When you need to use flour for baking, substitute soya flour or a bake mix like Atkins baking mix. In many cases, you can change your most popular recipes that use standard wheat flour to use these low carbohydrate alternatives.
Superfoods rich in flavonoids
(inlcudes garlic, fennel, kidney bean & peppermint)
The nutrients known as flavonoids which exist in these natural foods are believed to have properties as anti-carcinogens.
Nutritionalists looking into the medical effects of flavonoids think they may well have most other health giving capabilities, including anti-dermatitis and antiplatelet properties.
The majority of these are also low in calories, so should be included in every diet.
