I'm of mixed European heritages. My two grandmothers were Swedish and Italian/French so my cooking influences are varied and eclectic.
This recipe is something that my Swedish grandmother, and later my mother, made during holidays among other very traditional dishes such as Limpa (Sweet Rye Bread) so now it's become a comfort food and something completely special to me.
I hope you enjoy it.
This can be served anytime of day as a dessert, appetizer, fruit salad, etc.
It's very common at Swedish weddings as a tart filling.

How to Make Mor-Mor Wallberg's Fruktsoppa (Swedish Fruit Soup)

Step-by-Step

  • 1In a large saucepan, soak the apricots, prunes, and raisins in 6 cups of water for 30 minutes.
  • 2Add juice (or gelatin mixture), cinnamon, lemon, tapioca and sugar (and optional nutmeg or cloves) and bring to a boil.
  • 3Reduce the heat and simmer, covered, for 20 to 25 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking.
  • 4Uncover and add the apple slices and simmer an additional 5 minutes, or more, until the apples are tender.
  • 5When the soup is "done", the fruit should be plumped and tender and the consistency of the "soup" should be similar to a cooked pie filling before it's cooled.

    If this does not happen (I've had this happen at different altitudes, etc.), mix tapioca starch with a little cold water and add to the mixture, a little at a time, until the consistency is right.
    Add a little water or juice if the mixture is too thick.
  • 6Pour the mixture into a bowl and cool at room temperature. Remove the cinnamon sticks.
  • 7Can be served warm, room temperature, cold, or frozen. The most common accompaniment is cream or ice cream.
  • 8To each serving: 1 tsp Wine, rum, cognac or other liquors can be added, at serving time, to make this into an adult version or during cooking to add to the flavor.
