Preparation steps


For the soup: clean elderberries and rinse, drain well. Combine with slit vanilla pod, one piece of lemon peel, squeezed lemon juice, apple juice and 450 ml (approximately 2 cups) of water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for about 10 minutes or until berries fall apart. Strain through a fine sieve into a second pot. Peel apples, quarter and core, cut into wedges. Mix cornstarch with cold water and add to soup, stir until it thickens. Add apple wedges, season with honey or sugar and let stand for 3-4 minutes.


For the dumplings: beat egg whites with lemon juice until stiff, gradually add sugar. Bring milk to a boil and remove from heat. With 2 tablespoons, take egg white mixture and place into hot milk. Cook, turning over, for about 3 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon and place on a kitchen towel. Pour soup into bowls and garnish with dumplings and mint leaves. Serve.
