Category: Fruit, Soups

 Ingredients List

  • 2 lb Peaches; peeled; pitted
  • 2 lb Plums; cut
  • 1 lb Pears; peeled; pitted or
  • 16 oz Sour cherries; pitted;
  • -canned
  • 1 lb Apricots
  • 1 c Sugar; Water to cover
  • 1 tb Arrowroot OR Flour
  • 1 c Water; cold
  • Sour cream; for garnish


1. Place all the fruit and sugar in 6-quart pot and cover with water. Cook
until fruit is tender, 1/2-3/4 hour.

2. While fruit is cooking, mix arrowroot and water. When mixture is
completely dissolved add it to soup (around 10 minutes before soup is
finished). Bring to a simmer for remaining 10 minutes. CHILL NOTE: This is
may read gourmet, but it is a very OLD Jewish soup and my Bubbe made it on
those hot summer nights when nothing else would do. You can vary the
fruits. I had forgotten about it until I had my memory jogged on one of the
cruises Dad and I took.
