Reading Rainbow Fruit Stew

Reading Rainbow Fruit Stew

(4 servings)    Printable Version
  • 3 handfuls of dried apricots or peaches
  • honey or sugar to taste
  • about 3 cups of water
Put the fruit in a plastic bag and add just enough water to cover the fruit.

When you're ready to cook, put the fruit, all the water and the sweetening in a pot. Cover, and boil slowly. Stir often. Don't let the fruit burn. If water cooks away, add more.

This fruit stew should be juicy. Cook until fruit is soft - about half an hour.

A great camping breakfast as seen on the PBS series Reading Rainbow in 1983. Try dried dates or other dried fruits to make a Fruit Stew that's all your own.
