Started making this almost 40 yrs. ago, but lost my No Salt No Sugar Cookbook. It's a wonderful recipe that you will make all summer long. Don't wait another day! You can use your favorite fruits. It's a great way to use leftover fruit salad before it gets mushy. Add a few mint leaves and a dollop of crème fraiche for a special dessert. Also experiment with different frozen juice concentrates, orange, pineapple etc.
