Grandma’s Rose Hip Soup

Mormor’s Nypon Soppa

This dish is a favorite in Sweden and contains high amounts of vitamin C. Rose hips also contain many other health enhancing properties. This recipe comes down to me from my mother’s mother (Mormor) who was Swedish. I have altered it slightly for the GAPS or SCD diets.

  • ½ pound (230g) nypon (dog rose hips),
  • 1 cup raisins,
  • 1 Tablespoon almond butter
  • Almonds
  • Honey to taste
  • Cinnamon bark
  • Lemon, juice and rind

Cook nypon (rose hips) fresh or dried in 4 liters of water for about 2 hours. Stir often and when cooked press through a fine sieve. Add raisins, cinnamon and lemon. Cook 15 minutes. Thicken with potato flour. Add almonds cut in shreds. Add sugar to taste. Serve with whipped cream and macaroons, warm or cold.
