Søtsuppe (Sweet Soup)   

I have several recipes, but this one seems to be pretty close to what I remember (got it from Mom).

1 cup prunes

1 cup apricots

3/4 cup raisins

3/4 cup dried cherries

5 cups water

1 cup sugar

1/2 cup tapioca (soak night before)

1-½ cups grape juice

2 cinnamon sticks

1/2 orange, sliced

1/2 lemon, sliced


1 large, diced apple (optional)

Cook prunes, apricots and raisins in water for 20 minutes, add sugar.  Cook for 10 minutes and add tapioca, grape juice, cinnamon sticks, orange and lemon slices (+ apples, if desired).  Simmer another 10 minutes.
