Note: These breakfast preserves are best when made with fruit that has gotten a little too ripe to eat plain. It is a great use for that fruit you were just about to throw out.  Serve it with multi-grain toast or with a French baguette.

1 cup ripe fruit
1/3 cup brown sugar

You will also need:
Paring knife
Small pot
Large spoon

Peel the fruit (or if using berries, take off the stems) and chop into ¼” pieces. Put into a small pot and add the brown sugar. Bring to a boil over high heat and then reduce the heat to medium. Continue to cook uncovered for about 15 minutes until thickened.
