  • About

Grandma Peterson served this soup all year long, and at all times of day. She usually started it the night before, but as long as the fruit can soak for about 8 hours before cooking, you can make the entire recipe in a day. For the best results, follow Grandma Peterson’s method and avoid stirring the soup so the fruits stay whole. The flavors will blend together as the mixture simmers.
