Fruit pudding is a very simple Amish dessert that is great on its own or poured over ice cream. It’s simply fruit juice of your choice, thickened with therm-flo. You can also add fresh fruit before serving.


  • 3 quarts fruit juice of your choice (grape or raspberry are especially delicious)
  • 3 quarts water + extra for therm-flo


  1. Bring fruit juice, 3 quarts water, and sugar to a boil.
  2. In a separate bowl mix therm-flo with enough water to make a smooth paste.
  3. Add therm-flo to juice mixture, stirring constantly.
  4. Boil until thickened.
  5. Ladle into clean jars.
