Norwegian Raspberry Cordial / Bringebærsaft

A traditional recipe found on
Norwegian Raspberry Cordial / Bringebærsaft

Raspberries have been known and eaten as long as it has lived people in Norway. As far back as from the Stone Age, large amounts of raspberry seeds have been found in one place and it is probably waste after making something resembling modern cordials.

This recipe is from the book “Drikke fra Østfold” (Drink from Østfold), published by Østfold Associated Country Women in 2007.

Cordials were very popular in Norway when I was a kid back in the fifties and early sixties. At home both black currant, red currant, raspberry and bluberry cordials were made each autumn – Ted

    I know I did, but stories from Anne of Green Gables cannot be repeated too often, IMO. 😉
