Retro Warm Cocktail Sauce.....

How many of you remember your Mom serving you Angel Food Cake with a warm  Fruit Cocktail sauce. It was popular in the mid to late 1950's. I imagine it was popular because it was inexpensive to serve. However, it was good and that's all that really matters. Of course, you do have to like Fruit Cocktail.
Till next time......
