Refrigerate - Refrigerate any of the fruit salad you do not eat right away. The fruit salad will store for 2-3 days in the fridge. 
Fruit - Canned fruit is key, but you are welcome to change up what type of fruit you add into it. 
Bake - You can mix up the fruit and pour into a baking dish. Then bake at 275 degrees and stir every 20 minutes. Once the fruit breaks down you can then remove and serve.
