All at once

Thursday 16th of August. Talk about doing everything at once.

At 10.00 am FGL had an interview with a magazine which comes out next Thursday.
We talked and talked and shared the whole story about FGL, from the start up until now.
Often Kristin and I say we tend to talk to much?
Sometimes it feels that way… Maybe not weird yesterday because the interview was all about both of us and FGL Store. Fun!

Also told them when we work, everything goes fast. All at the same time, yesterday was not an exception.

Rose hip soup was on our to-do after a quick shoot and after we’d finished packing.
Started picking the rose hips, took some photos, had lunch, packed orders, time went very quickly. Then we needed to buy the remaining ingredients for this soup – tots forgot about that until it was time to make it.

All this in 30min, just before we had to be somewhere else…

DONE DONE & DONE.

Instagram stories, photos, soup in the making, more photos, some cleaning up and that was a wrap.

Here’s the recipe guys.

600 g (4 cups) fresh rosehips
2 litres (8 cups) water
50-100 g (½ cup) sugar or honey or both
1 tbsp cornflour (cornstarch)

 

1.Cut each rosehip in half then scoop out some of the seeds, we kept most of it cause we were in a hurry.
2.Put the skins in a pan, add the water, bring to the boil and simmer for about 30 minutes until they are soft.
3. Poor it all into a strainer and push through so the seeds disappear. and the meat goes through,
4. Boil it al up again – add the sugar or honey or go 50% 50% . We added enough so it got little bit sweeter.
5. Add starch. Let it cool down..

Serve with whipped cream and chunks of a Mazarine cake, Oh man so yummers!

It was truly delicious and it’s really healthy to..
( don’t add the cream and the cookie on top if you wanna be Just healthy, )

Some facts:
There were two important reasons for the popularity of ‘nyponsoppa’
Firstly, many Swedes were very poor years ago (large number emigrated to America in the hope of escaping poverty) and rose hips could be picked for free.
Secondly, rose hips contain a lot of the vitamins C, D and E, calcium and a load of antioxidants. In the winter months, in a country that can be bitterly cold, they were regarded as an essential part of everyone’s diet.

Enjoy!
