DIRECTIONS

  • In a large 3-quart (or bigger) stainless steel or enamel saucepan, combine the apricots and prunes with the cold water and let soak for 30 minutes.
  • Next, add the cinnamon stick, lemon slices, tapioca and sugar to the pot, and bring to a boil; once boiling, reduce the heat and cover the pan; let simmer for 10 minutes (stir occasionally with a wooden spoon since the fruits can stick to the bottom of the saucepan).
  • After the 10 minutes are up, remove the cover and stir in the raisins, currants and apple slices; simmer for 5 more minutes (the apples should then be soft and tender; if not, simmer a wee bit longer).
  • Pour the soup mixture into a large serving bowl and let cool to room temperature.
  • When soup has cooled, fish out the cinnamon stick, cover the bowl, and chill in the refrigerator.
  • This dessert is served cold, in either dessert dishes or soup bowls; makes for a very light dessert.
