Søtsuppe – Scandinavian Sweet Soup

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Outta Here

Sweet soup can be served either warm or cold, as a dessert or snack or for breakfast. Dried cranberries work well instead of raisins.

This was a delicious, different soup! I used craisins, apricots, dried apples from our tree, prunes and unsweetened grape juice. I'm not sure what purpose was served by the addition of 1 Tb. of tapioca - it wasn't enough to thicken the soup, but I did enjoy eating the little "dots"! Couldn't find my star anise, so added a couple drops of anise extract. Probably wouldn't bother with that next time. I'm looking forward to a bowl of oatmeal mixed with this lovely fruit soup! Thanks, Mikekey - good luck to your Seahawks!
