    fruit soup

    Hi! My first visit hear, happy to have found you! My 100% Norwegian grandma used to make fruit soup, dried fruit, cinnamon tapioca and water. Wonderful stuff! I was wondering if this is a Scandinavian dish,or just a way for people to get their vitamin C in the "olden times"!

    Hi there pammyowl! wave.gif Nice to meet you!

    At least in Finland, dried fruit soup is still a Christmas staple. We serve it on top of rice pudding, or dolloped with whipped cream.

    No reason why it couldn't be served at other times too, but it seems to be one of those traditional dishes for traditional occasions! icon_biggrin.gif

    Hi, Pammyowl! Welcome! icon_smile.gif
    Hi, Stormy! icon_smile.gif
    I've never had fruit soup, though I'm sure there must be something similar in Sweden. Should I look for a recipe and give it a try?
    It's not Christmas yet, but it's starting to get cold here. icon_surprised.gif

    The recipe is very simple. This is the way my grandma made it; Put the desired dried fruits in a sauce pot, along with a touch of cinnamon, water to cover, and pearl tapioca. Simmer till done. That is it! Serve warm or cold, but room temp. is the best! icon_lol.gif
    By the way, I am so happy to have found this forum. My fathers family is Norwegian, my mothers Norwegian heritage was corrupted by a German Irish mother! Too funny! One of these days, when I win the lottery, I'm going to Norway, to meet the relatives! Apparently, there is a mountain with my family name, icon_lol.gif

    Oh you definitely need to meet that mountain! icon_biggrin.gif There's a village up north with my mom's maiden name, and all the relatives with that name have had their picture taken with the road sign. icon_wink.gif
