Allow the following ingredients: - 1 pineapple, finely chopped; 1 pint of strawberries; 6 bananas; 6 oranges and 1 lemon, thinly sliced, sugar to taste. Mix all together, add one wine glass of sherry or Madeira (if desired), and set on ice until very cold.
Instead of strawberries, sliced guavas may be used, or grenadillas squeezed out over the whole.
Slice 1 dozen oranges, grate 1 fresh cocoanut, and mix sugar with it. Arrange in an ornamental dish alternate layers of oranges and cocoanut, and heap cocoanut on top.
Peel and slice the required number of oranges, and arrange in a glass dish alternate layers of oranges and sugar until all the fruit is used. Add grenadillas squeezed out, whip some sweet cream very stiff, sweeten and flavour it to taste, and pour over the whole.
Take 1 dozen sweet oranges; 1 dozen bananas; 1 pineapple; 1 cocoanut. With a sharp knife cut the oranges and pineapple into thick slices, then cut them into bits freed from seed and eyes. Thinly slice the bananas, and grate the cocoanut. Arrange layers of the different fruits in alternation, in a deep dish, sprinkle each layer with sugar; and over the whole pour the juices of the cocoanut, oranges and pineapple.
Take a nice ripe water-melon, cut off top, scoop out fruit, and cut into square pieces. Cut up ripe bananas, pineapple, apricots, apples and any ripe fruit; add a few handfuls of crystallised cherries, two handfuls sugar, and one tumblerful old wine. Mix all together and fill into melon. Replace the top, and set in ice-chest or cool place, where it can get nice and cold.
