  1. Whisk the flour & sugar together. Beat eggs until light, and whisk in flour & sugar.
  2. Drain a can of pineapple tidbits into a 2-cup measure, add the lemon and orange juices, and pour in enough vinegar to make 1-1/4 cups total liquid. Add to the egg mixture. Cook in double boiler, stirring constantly, until thickened.
  3. Chill thorougly, then fold in whipped cream.
  4. Fold into your mixed fruit--we like to use 2-3 apples, 2 oranges, 3-4 bananas, about 1 cup grapes, some cherries (fresh, frozen, or canned), any other fruit in season, and some little marshmallows. You could also add chopped nuts, coconut, or anything else that sounds good!
  5. Chill and enjoy!
