Fruit Salad with my wacky pears...

This fruit salad has crushed pineapple, sliced bananas, dried cranberries, raisins, and home canned pears. Sounds 'normal' enough, huh?
Well, everything but my pears were 'normal'.
Those pears however, were canned with lime juice rather than ascorbic acid.
See, they had been here for days and I was a little concerned about allowing them to sit any longer and I didn't have any lemon juice or fresh fruit- so- what's a frugal mom to do?
I had limes!
So, limes it was!
Now, alone, these are a little, uhmm- different, but in a fruit salad, they add a neat flavor and no one notices that its really lime! ;-)
So, just in case you ever find yourself in a pickle- or a mason jar- and out of the 'normal' stuff-- Lime will work!
