Mock Fruit Soup

This recipe is from a 1969 booklet Pillsbury's Soup & Salad Cook Book. It is described as a "great appetizer or dessert soup. Especially good on a cold winter's night." I doubt that. I am not a fan of fruit soup anyway but you can't tell me it is going to look or taste like anything other than warm, slimey, watered-down fruit cocktail in a bowl.
Mock Fruit Soup
1 can (1 lb. 1 oz.) fruit cocktail, drain and reserve 1 cup syrup (adding water if necessary)
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 cup orange juice
2 tablespoons orange liqueur, if desired
Dash nutmeg

In medium saucepan, gradually add reserved 1 cup syrup to cornstarch; stir until smooth. Add remaining ingredients and fruit cocktail. Heat through. Serve warm. If desired, top with toasted slivered almonds. 4 to 5 servings.

Well, that sounds just terrible - especially on a cold night! I thought you had fruit soup in the summer...I love this kind of thing though - to read about, thanks for posting it!
