My Blueberry Soup

The cup is from Tiimari, with a Pattern Bakery -pattern.

With temperatures still below -15-20 degrees Celsius, hot drinks are an absolute must at the moment. If you've preserved berries from last summer, now is a perfect time to utilize them. Blueberry soup is calming and relaxing, the perfect hot after a walk outside.

For the soup you'll need (makes 6 portions):

6 dl water
400 g blueberries, can be frozen
1 dl sugar
cinnamon stick

for thickening:
2 dl water
4 tbs potato flour (can be substituted with corn flour)

to decorate:
vanilla sugar

Heat water until it boils. Add berries, cinnamon stick and sugar. Boil for couple of minutes. Mix cold water with potato flour. Move pan from the stove, add the thickening as a thin stream and mix the soup at the same time. Boil the soup quickly. Let cool a bit and decorate with whipped cream and vanilla sugar.

P.S. Guess what the new trend-food is amongst the celebrity? Image-magazine says Guardian said (phew, talk about rumors), it's porridge! Not just any old porridge of course, but posh luxury porridges with for example rice, maple syrup, stewed apple and white miso-paste. But what could be more posh than princess porridge, I ask. I wonder if they're having that?
