My Mom and my Grand mother on my Dads side used to make a concoction called Pineaple Dope! It is pineapple chunks, several big cans with the juice heated in a large pan, with lots of minute Tapioca and sugar, you heat it till the sugar and Tapioca desolves, then you add maraschino cherries, drained ( no juice at all) mix it all together and then take a large high sided glass dish, and fill the bottom with miniture marshmellows, and pour the hot pineapple, cherry, tapioca mixture over the marshmellows. The Marshmellows melt and rise to the top through the pinapple, put in the frig and serve it cold in a dish. The tapioca thickens the mixture, and it is a refreshing summer time dish, that as a boy we always had it at get-togethers! I learned how to make it from my mother and I make it quite frequently in the summer!!
