Grandma Flora's Fruit Drizzle

I am re-posting this unique fruit drizzle from my Grandma Flora:

This is a yummy, sweet and tangy sauce that you can drizzle over a fresh fruit salad. It goes best with bananas, apples, oranges, grapes and grapefruit. I especially love it on the grapefruit! My mom always peeled the grapefruit like an you would a whole apple and then section out the pieces with a knife. It looks so pretty on a salad plate on a piece of loose leaf lettuce. When the salad is all eaten, the lettuce has collected all the sweet juices. That is my dad's favorite part!

You can store this drizzle in a Mason jar in the fridge for months. Just take it out and let it come to room temp before you serve it.
