Select firm but ripe fresh fruit, such as apples, peaches, pears, pineapples, and bananas.
Core, peel when necessary, and slice into attractive shapes approximately 1/2 inch thick.
Melt butter over medium-high heat in a large skillet.
Add brown sugar, ginger, and salt, stirring until sugar melts.
Pour in the lemon juice.
Fold in the fresh fruits and saute 1 to 2 minutes, stirring gently.
Finished fruit should be hot and well glazed, but still slightly firm inside.
