Mom's Tips

(This recipe was given to me by Delma Bennett.  It is from Lois Coomes)

  • 2 teaspoons Quick tapioca
  • 1 1/2 cup of water

(soak these 2 ingredients for 5 minutes)


  • 1 small can of orange concentrate
  • dash of salt

Cook tapioca until it comes to a boil.  Remove from heat and blend in salt and 1/2 cup of sugar.  Cook 20 minutes and add fruit, such as, peaches, pears, banana and berries.  This is a very refreshing soup.  It’s great for a dessert or to eat at breakfast time.  My husband loves fruit soup, his great aunt used to make fruit soup, it had raisins or prunes in it.  No, I didn’t eat it — way too sweet.
