How to make Fruktsoppa:
  • Soak dried apricots and prunes in cold water, in a large stainless steel saucepan, for 30 minutes.
  • Add cinnamon stick, lemon slices, tapioca and sugar to the pan and boil the mixture.
  • On boiling, reduce the heat and simmer for 10 minutes.
  • Stir occasionally, using a wooden spoon, to prevent fruit from sticking to the bottom of the pan.
  • Add the raisins, dried currants and apple slices and simmer for an additional 5 minutes.
  • Ensure that the apples are soft and can be easily pierced with the tip of a sharp knife or skewer.
  • Pour the soup into a large serving bowl and let it cool down to room temperature.
  • Remove the cinnamon stick.
  • Cover the bowl with a plastic wrap and refrigerate to chill the soup.
  • Serve the soup in compote dishes or soup bowls.
  • You can try adding a scoop of vanilla ice-cream on top of the soup.
