Swedish Blueberry Soup (Blåbärssoppa)

I was looking for photos and recipe for alcoholic drink made by blueberries that we drink in Slovenia and we call it “borovničke”. I found it =)) And I also found recipe for Blåbärssoppa. If u add alcohol is almost the same and u don’t have to wait some months to make it perfect. Like in “borovničke” u put in big glass some bluberries and sugar and bluberries and sugar again. Then u put all on the sun and u wait for some months that sugar melts (u can add some wother also, probablly the proces go faster, don’t know jajajajaja ). After that happens u add some strong alcohol mix all together and leave to rest for some more time…. after all that u have “borovničke”. It’s really good!!! And depense of how much sugar u put in it, could be really sweet or not so sweet.

Here is recipe for Blåbärssoppa ( I really wanna hear how they pronunce this xDDDD )  –> editing =p here u can hear how they say http://www.forvo.com/search/Bl%C3%A5b%C3%A4rssoppa/
