    About this recipe: Tapioca, dried fruit and cinnamon are cooked down to make this delicious sweet soup! It's a Swedish Christmas recipe that has been passed down in my family for generations.

    Serves: 10 

    • 75g tapioca
    • 2 litres water
    • 255g pitted prunes
    • 250g seedless raisins
    • 50g sugar
    • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
    • 2 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice
    • 1 dash salt

    Prep:15min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Extra time:8hr chilling  ›  Ready in:8hr45min 

    1. Place the tapioca in a bowl with enough water to cover. Leave it to soak for 8 hours, or overnight.
    2. Fill a large saucepan with 2 litres water. Mix in the prunes, raisins, sugar and cinnamon. Bring to the boil, and stir in the soaked tapioca. Stirring often, cook 30 minutes, or until tapioca is clear and prunes are tender. Mix in the lemon juice and salt at the end of the cook time.
    3. Chill until completely cooled before serving - it tastes better.
