Fruit Soup

Fruit Soup

In France, my mother-in-law cooks fruit such as apricots and plums when she has an abundance or when the fruit is overly ripe.  When the fruit cooks, the juices are released, and the result is a sweet soup.  I took this idea and used a combination of berries and fresh orange juice. It has become a favorite among children and is impressive enough for entertaining- and it is so simple to make.
