If a recipe says "untested"...

We want to post scans of all the original recipes so everyone in our family can enjoy them even if we haven't gotten around to testing each one in our modern kitchen. As we test each recipe, we will add our notes and photos to the recipes we do test and remove the note "untested" in the title. If you make one of the untested recipes, take a photo of the finished product and send us a note to let us know of your experience so we may include those in the recipes as well.

Fruit Punch (untested)

This is a recipe that I think is in Grammy's handwriting. I suspect this recipe predates 1952 because of the ingredient "cold tea". Grammy did not consume tea after 1952 when she (along with her husband and two older daughters) was baptized into The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints whose members do not partake of tea or coffee.

  • 2 quarts cold water
  • 1 quart grape juice
  • 2 quarts cold tea [I would substitute this]
  • 1 cup diced cherries
  • 1 cup crushed pineapple
  • Juice of 10 lemons
  • 4 cups sugar syrup
  • Large block of ice [size would depend on your serving container]
  1. Mix water, grape and lemon juices, and tea
  2. Add the syrup, cherries and pineapple
  3. Mix well
  4. Pour mixture over a large piece of ice
  5. Serve

Makes 6 quarts
