I used to make this and loved it.  It is different!  I can't remember
if I really used 6 cups of apple juice, or if I made part of that water.
It sounds very sweet!  Also, you can put whatever berries you want
in it.  Blueberries are very very in season now, so this would be
delicious.  I found it good to take in a picnic lunch also.

Blueberry-Couscous Cake

6 c. apple juice    3 c. couscous
1 Tbs vanilla       1 pint blueberries

Wash bb's and set on paper towels to dry.  Combine apple juice, vanilla, and
couscous in a large saucepan and bring to a boil.  Cook, stirring constantly
until thickened & all juice absorbed.  Remove from heat.  Gently fold the
bb's into hot mix.  Rinse but don't dry a 9x14 (inch) cake pan & pour the
mix into it.  Chill until set, ~2 hours.  Cut into squares.

Variations: Use strawberries in place of blueberries, top with
            unsweetened fruit jam thinned with a little water, arrange
            fruit slices on top for decoration.
