Rosehips

Rose hip soup (Swedish: Nyponsoppa) is a Swedish soup made from rose hips[2]. It is served as a beverage or as a dessert with milk, cream or vanilla ice cream along with small almond biscuits.

Some eat it for breakfast. The types of soup for that purpose are generally lower in fruit content and more watery. Instead, broken up crisp bread is sometimes added.

Description and preparation[edit]

Nypon or rose hips are the fruit of common wild roses, Rosa canina, found in Sweden. The hips form after the rose petals have fallen off. They are picked after the first frost of the fall, once ripe and red, then dried.[3] Nyponsoppa is typically made with dried rose hips, water, potato flour (as a thickener), and sugar. The rose hips are boiled until they are soft and then blended with a mixer. The mixture is then run through a sieve and thickened with potato flour.[4] Rose hips are rich in vitamin C.[5]
