Tasty Tuesday-Tadpole Soup

Tadpoles in your soup anyone?  In Tyger Tyger by Kersten Hamilton, the nasty goblins like to eat tadpole soup.  I had to laugh because that made me think of frog-eye salad, a staple at many gatherings and reunions.  So mix up a batch today and see what your kids think of the secret ingredient.

Tadpole Soup

4 1/2 cups water, divided
½ cup sugar
1/3 cup tapioca
1 (12 oz) can frozen orange juice
2 sliced bananas
1 package fresh strawberries
4 oranges, sectioned

Bring 2 cups of water, sugar and tapioca to boil. Cook until tapioca is clear. Pour into a large bowl. Add orange juice and remaining water. Mix and let cool. Add fruit. Serve in a cup for an appetizer.
