 Scrumptious Breakfast Fruit Soup
About 25 years ago, I received this recipe from my husband's aunt, whose grandmother often prepared it in Denmark. Now it's one of the most requested dishes in my own family.
8-10 ServingsPrep: 10 min. Cook: 15 min. + standing

  • 4 tablespoons quick-cooking tapioca
  • 1 cinnamon stick (2 inches)
  • 1 can (29 ounces) sliced peaches with syrup
  • 2-1/2 cups assorted dried fruits, chopped
  • 1 cup pitted dried plums
  • 1 cup raisins
  • Juice of 1 lemon


  • In a large heavy saucepan, bring water, tapioca and cinnamon stick to
  • a boil; reduce heat and simmer, stirring frequently, for 15 minutes
  • or until tapioca begins to thicken. Add remaining ingredients and
  • continue to cook over medium heat for 25 minutes, stirring
  • frequently. Remove from the heat; cover and let stand for 30
