My father was German-Mennonite and grew up eating this chilled fruit soup. When I was about 15, I found a recipe for it and made it for him. He said it was the "best ever"! I'm sure he was just boosting my self-confidence as a new cook, but I was so proud that I'd made a dish that reminded him of his youth.
