Expert Tips

  • For added richness, try serving this Scandinavian soup garnished with a dollop of sour cream.
  • Lingonberry preserves are a sweet-tart condiment often used in both savory and sweet Scandinavian dishes. It can be found in the jelly-jam section of the grocery store. Cranberry sauce can be substituted for the lingonberry preserves, if desired.
