Plum Soup

This recipe came from my Grandmother, Ida. My Mom used to make it when I was a kid (although I wouldn't try it back then). It is a great soup and can be made with any fruit. We eat it warm. I haven't tried it cold. The dumplings absorb the goodness of the fruit juice and it really is a nice treat. The cook times are approximate as there is no set rule for how long the soup can cook.

ingredients

  • Dumplings

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 14 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted
  • 12 cup milk
  • Soup

  • 1 pint fruit (Mom uses a large can of plums, but you can use any fresh, frozen or canned fruit)
  • 2 tablespoons grape juice (this is optional)
  • 12 apple, chopped into small chunks (I use a tart apple)
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon tapioca

directions

  • Dumplings:

  • Put some water on to boil.
  • Mix ingredients together gently, until all are mixed.
  • Drop by tablespoonful into boiling water (you want small dumplings).
  • Cover and cook for about 15 minutes.
  • While this is cooking, get your soup going.
  • When these are done, remove and place in your soup.
  • Soup:

  • Process your plums (or other fruit) through a sieve, pulse briefly in a food processor or chop until fine.
  • Mix all ingredients in a pot and cook over low heat.
  • Add your dumplings when they're ready.
  • Stir often so the dumplings don't stick to the bottom.
  • Eat warm and enjoy!
