    1       md           Cantaloupe
    1       qt           Strawberries, fresh
      1/2   lb           Grapes, green
    4       md           Apples, cored & quartered
      3/4   c            Lemon juice, fresh
      1/2   c            Sugar
    6       c            Water
    1 1/2   c            Orange juice, fresh
 
   Cut the cantaloupe in half.  Remove the seeds and stringy fibers,
   scoop out the pulp with a large spoon and chop it coarsely/  Wash the
   strawberries and grapes under cold running water, picking out and
   discarding any fruits that are badly bruised.  Remove and discard the
   stems.
   Combine the cantaloupe, strawberries, grapes, apples, 1/2 cup of the
   lemon juice, the sugar and water in a 4 to 6 quart enameled or
   stainless steel saucepan.  Bring to a boil over high heat, reduce the
   heat to low and simmer uncovered for 15 minutes.
   Puree the soup through a food mill, or pour the entire contents of
   the pan into a large fine sieve set over a deep bowl and force the
   ingredients through with the back of a spoon, pressing down hard on
   the fruits before discarding any remaining pulp.
   Stir the remaining 1/4 cup of lemon juice and the orange juice into
   the soup and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or until thoroughly
   chilled.
