Norwegian Sweet Soup / Søtsuppe

Norwegian Sweet Soup / Søtsuppe

Dried fruit soup, known as “Søtsuppe” or “Sweet Soup” is a Norwegian favorite. Here’s a basic recipe – feel free to experiment with the types of fruit according to your taste and the ingredients you have on hand. The trick is to simmer the soup slowly to retain the shapes of the fruit. If most of the liquid were cooked out, this would be known as a fruit compote.

Cookie floaters lend an extra sparkle to Norwegian fruit soups and compotes.

Norwegian Christmas Cake / julekake

A classic cake recipe foubd in “Mat for Alle” (Food for Everyone)

Norwegian Christmas Cake / julekake

This type of Norwegian Christmas cake is a strange phenomenon, as we really bake it all year long. It is largely for sale in the stores all year too. And we call it Christmas cake whenever we eat it. It is mostly served either with just butter, or with butter and brown cheese. The name is so incorporated in people my age’s everyday speech that I do not think we really remember that the name really has to do with Christmas.

Tudor Vegetable Pie / Grønnsakspai fra Tudortiden

A meatless pie recipe from the Tudor era
found at historyextra.com

 Tudor Vegetable Pie / Grønnsakspai fra Tudortiden

In every issue of BBC History Magazine, picture editor Sam Nott brings you a recipe from the past. In this article, a vegetable pie from the Tudor era.

Sam writes: This 1596 recipe for a “pie of bald meats [greens] for fish days” was handy for times such as Lent or Fridays when the church forbade the eating of meat (another similar recipe is called simply Friday Pie). Medieval pastry was a disposable cooking vessel, but in the 1580s there were great advancements in pastry work. Pies became popular, with many pastry types, shapes and patterns filled with everything from lobster to strawberries. This pie’s sweet/savoury combo is typical of Tudor cookery. I enjoyed it, but was glad I’d reduced the sugar content.
