Soak tapioca overnight in 5 cups of water, drain in the morning, and replace with 5 fresh cups of water. Stir in sugar and salt.
Place in large glass casserole dish and bake in 325* oven for 2 hours stirring often. Cook until tapioca is clear. Remove from oven and let cool.
Once cooled fold in 1 tablespoon of dry jello, and add your fruits as desired. Add your cool whip and lightly stir in. You can add a drop or two of food coloring if you like, I have added colored miniture marshmallows befor. Refrigerate until well chilled... Enjoy!
