"A table, a chair, a bowl of fruit and a violin, what else does a man Need to be happy? " Albert Einstein.


Today I wanted to share with you one of my favorite fruit recipes. The more I make this fruit dessert the more I enjoy it ! Why?...because it is an AMAZING, Effective and --not to mention Tasty way to use *Fruit Leftovers*. 



To make this dessert you can use any fruit of your choice; strawberries, peaches, apples, grapefruit, etc. It is absolutely versatile and it could be serve over vanilla cake, chocolate cake, ice cream, crepes, pancakes and even cereal! Sautéed fruit could also be used as a pie filling-- Is quick to cook, is fresh, healthy (is not canned fruit) and works wonders for your fruit pie. 
Let Us Not Waste Our ​​fruit!

Easy and lovely as you do. :)

What is the sauce in the small container? A dipping sauce or leftover syrup from the pan?

Have a great day!
