Growing Chefs! Ontario Norwegian Apple Soup

Norwegian Apple Soup

Soup for dessert might be an uncommon concept to us in Canada, but in Norway and Sweden this is a comforting genre of desserts that we really need to get behind. This soup is almost like a thin warm apple sauce, served with ice cream or even some nice yogurt.

Get Organized!

Gather your mise en place; get together all of the equipment needed for the recipe and gather your ingredients.

Get Prepped!

Measure the sugar, cinnamon, water, and cornstarch into a large pot.

Peel the apples and dice them around the core into 1 centimetre pieces roughly, and add it into the pot with the sugar and water mixture.

Juice the lemon and set aside.

Get Cooking!

Cook the apples over medium heat for about 15 minutes, until the apples are softened but still holding their shape.

Stir in the lemon juice, salt and a pinch of pepper.

Transfer the contents to a blender and blend until very smooth.

Serve immediately warm with a dollop of ice cream or yogurt, and garnish it with chopped nuts if desired.
