Jo Anne's notes for this recipe:
It is a local favorite here in Hawaii. I make this every year during the Holidays for gift giving. Either use mason jars or Holiday themed canning jars or plastic Holiday containers that have tight covers. Add a bow on the top, and it looks so festive. Besides it's "ono" delicious! The photo is not mine but it looks exactly like how is should be.

Hey Pretty Lady, This dish sounds so good !! Excuse mu ignorance, but do you eat this right out off the container? Do you serve it with a meat dish? I've never had this dish but fruit is my favorite food. Thanks Jo Anne for bringing the island to us in your recipes....Jewel
