One of the gentle ladies in my home kingdom, I don't believe her to be on this list, was asking about Rose Hip Soup.  Another gentle lady had heard of it, and I believe she discussed it as a 'cold fruit soup.  The concept was discussed to be of a period 'Viking' food, and the other lady disucssed having same in Swedish, and described it as a little slice of heaven, but it was a modern dish (she indicated she had seen it prepared from a packet "Like onion soup mix" but that she had "never seen it in the US".  Given that I have never heard of such a thing, I commenced to wondering ...
Anyone on this wonderfully knowlegable list every hear of Rose Hip soup?  Know how it is prepared?  Is it also a period food?  Are there differences between the period verion and the modern one?
How may we help these two wonderful women?
