Fruit Soup

We made this for Becky's shower and it was the perfect shower food! It's from The Sisters' Cafe and they say it's the epitome of chick food. Perfectly put!

This really is like a cold soup full of berries and fruit with just a little bit of a syrupy feel to it. Serve in small cups with spoons!

3/4 c. sugar
1 c. water
1 c. peach juice (or another cup of water)
3 Tb tapioca (“minute brand” quick cooking tapioca)
6 oz orange juice concentrate
1 ½ c. water
2 cans mandarin oranges (with or without juice)
1 quart sliced peaches , cut into bite-size pieces (you can use 1 large can of peach slices, without the syrup)
2 c. fresh strawberries, sliced, just before serving
2 bananas, sliced, just before serving
1 bag frozen raspberries, thawed but still cool and firm (or an equivalent amount of fresh) or other berry mix

Bring sugar, water, peach juice and tapioca to a boil. Continue boiling on medium high for about 10 minutes, stirring often. Some tapioca will be clear and other granules will have a white center. Take off heat. Let sit for 30 minutes. (This is when the tapioca will become more clear.) Add 6 oz orange juice concentrate and 1 ½ c. water. Chill overnight. Add mandarin oranges and peaches. Before serving add strawberries, bananas, and raspberries.
