Armenian Sweet Soup or Anoush Abour Recipe

An Armenian Christmas pudding.

What you'll need

  • 7 cups hulled wheatberries
  • 14 cups water
  • 5 cups sugar
  • 2 cups golden raisins
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 cups walnuts
  • 2 cups blanched, slivered almonds
  • Cinnamon for garnish

How to make it

  1. In a large pot, bring the wheat and the water to a boil. Remove from heat and soak overnight. By the next morning, the wheat should have doubled in size.
  2. Cook it over very low heat, adding the sugar until nearly all the water is absorbed and the mixture has the consistency of porridge. Stir in the raisins and the vanilla. Divide into small bowls and decorate with walnuts and almonds arranged to look like flower petals. Sprinkle with cinnamon. Makes 8 servings.
