I remember eating this soup every Christmas while growing up. I considered it a real treat. My mother, who was born in Sweden, made this soup during holidays, and now I carry on the family tradition. I look forward to all of our Swedish Christmas traditions-especially eating this soup. —Enice Jacobson, Wildrose, North Dakota

"In addition to the fruit used here, we also use dried apricots, dates, figs, raisins, and use cinnamon sticks."

"My husband also comes from a Sweedish family. My mother-in-law made a soup almost identical to this at Christmas. She never knew the exact ingredients but told me what she did. I too now make this and it is awesome. It smells wonderful and is always nice on a blistery Christmas Eve."
