Barbara's Fruit Soup

Barbara Oseland


This was taught to me years ago and I love it! Every time I open a jar I find a new way to serve it. This fruity "soup" is almost like eating a pie filling with different kinds of fruit. You can serve hot or cold, with granola, oatmeal or on toast, ice cream, pound cake or even in place of Jelly for a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.
