Helen's Fruit Salad I

This salad is very similar to the previous one. Helen sure loved her fruit salads! And she used a lot of white cherries. If you can't find white cherries, then use whatever kind you can find.

Helen's Fruit Salad I

1 large can pineapple, drained and diced
1 can white cherries, peeled and halved
1 small bottle Maraschino cherries, drained
1/2 lb. marshmallows
1 pint whipping cream
1/2 pint coffee cream
4 eggs yolks
1/2 cup sugar
Juice of 2 lemons

Directions same as for 24 Hour Salad.
Okay, so you don't want to have to go back to the 24 Hour Salad so I will give the directions here and be kinder than Helen's cook book.

Boil sugar, whipping cream, and egg yolks until it coats the back of the spoon. Stir in marshmallows until melted. Fold in whipping cream and juice of lemons. Chill. Combine the fruits and fold in the chilled mixture.
*You can buy the pineapple in chunk form.
