Friendly Fruit & Very Friendly Fruit Coffe Cake

Friendly Fruit:
3/4 Cup Drained chopped peaches
3/4 Cup Drained chopped pineapple
6 Maraschino cherries
1/2 Package yeast
1 1/2 Cups sugar

Combine in large crock or glass jar. Mix well, let stand loosely covered in warm palce for 2 weeks. Stir several times the first day, then once every 24 hours the first week. Do not stir the second week.

Then add to mixture above:
2 Cups drained pineapple chunks
1 Cup sugar

Stir and let stand, covered, for 2 more weeks. Then add to above:
2 Cups drained peach slices
1 Cup sugar

Stir and let stand, covered, for 2 more weeks. Then:
2 Cups fruit (peaches, pears, pineapple, etc.)

Added to the above every 2 weeks from now until eternity. Be sure to take out 2 or 3 cups at least every 2 weeks and use or give it to a friend. After a while you will have no friends! They will hide when they see you coming. Sneak and put it on their porch when they're not looking!
