cup of pineapple, peaches or cherries every two weeks, alternating
fruits each time and stirring gently.

Brandy should not be required. Do not add fruit more often than once

cups in each portion. Do this just before you would do a normal
feeding. Feed each portion. Give one portion to a friend and keep one
for yourself.
