I had this recipe at my sister's-in-law home for Thanksgiving many years ago, served in place of cranberry sauce with turkey. I have made it many times since then and served it as a dessert as well as a side dish. The way I put the fruit in the dish makes it LOOK as good as it tastes.
Place peaches and pears in pyrex dish or casserole. Top with pineapple slices. Place marachino cherries in center of each pineapple slice and around them as well. Sprinkle over all the light brown sugar
Melt the butter/margarine and stir into it the curry powder. Pour over all.
Bake covered at 350 degree in oven. (May also be made in a microwave for less time.) Serve hot or warm/room temperature.
