My maternal Grandmother's recipe.

I've made this with crushed,chunk, and tidbit pineapple pieces as well, (my favorite is the tidbits). When I do this, I space out the cherry halves evenly, or omit them. I've also sprinkled on dried cherries before the tidbits.

I omit the salt if I'm using salted butter. Margarine can be used instead.
