A recipe for a hearty soup found in “Supper og Sauser” (Soups
and Sauces) published by Hjemmets Kokebokklubb in 1980
One can find different recipes for soups like this throughout Scandinavia. In the old days, soup was often the only thing one could afford to make so it was important that it was hearty. The smoked sausages could be exchanged with cheap cuts of meat or poultry. Or in hard times, be left out completely, leaving the potatoes to save the day.
