“From Aebleskiver and More - A Sampling of Danish Recipes by Lisa Steen Riggs. Number of servings is a guestimate. Also, the recipe does not indicate what to do with the meat once you have removed it from the kettle and strained the broth. Should you add it back in? I would, but I like meaty soup. I guess it's up to you.”
