(Norwegian Sweet Soup)
cup Minute tapioca
2 cups water
1 orange w/peel, sliced
1 cup seedless raisins
1 cup chopped apple
1 cup stoned prunes
tsp salt
1 stick cinnamon
1 Tbsp lemon juice
1 cup sugar
2 cups grape juice

Cut prunes, chop apple, and otherwise prepare fruit ready to add to pot. Add tapioca to boiling water, stirring frequently.* Quickly add rest of ingredients except grape juice, and boil gently until fruit is tender. When soup is done, add grape juice. Serve warm with rusks (dry toast). May be served cold as dessert; garnish with whipped cream and chopped nuts.

Other fruits may be added also, such as dried apricots and/or cranberries. Increase water by cup for each additional cup of fruit. Watch carefully while cooking; it burns easily.

Cookbook from Klub Kristine Chapter
Sons of Norway

* These are the original directions. I find the tapioca thickens too quickly so the fruit doesn’t cook enough. I put fruit into the water, bring to boil, then add tapioca and sugar. Sometimes I use pearl tapioca, which doesn’t thicken and burn as fast. Then it can be added at the start.
