*My co-worker gave this recipe to me, I thought this was hard to make but it’s so simple and easy. I substituted the butter w/soya margarine, it taste as good as the butter. You can use Granny Smith apples, peaches or plums, but you have to core and peel them before using. You can also add maraschino cherries cut in half, place 1/2 cherry on the middle of each pineapple ring. enJOY!
