Fruktsoppa (Fruit Soup)

A Swedish dessert soup that’s easy to make and very good. Try serving it over vanilla ice cream, too.


1 box (8 ounces) dried apricots
1 box (6 ounces) seedless raisins
1 box (12 ounces) pitted prunes
4 to 5 apples, peeled, cored, and sliced in wedges
10 cups water
1 cup white sugar
1/4 cup quick-cooking tapioca
Cream or whipped topping


In a large saucepan, combine the fruit and water. Bring to a boil and simmer for 30 minutes. Add the sugar and tapioca and simmer for another 15 minutes. Serve warm or cooled, with cream or whipped topping.
