Recipe for Chilled Cherry Summer Soup

Ingredients

  1. 2 24-oz. jars of pitted sour cherries (preferably morellos), with their juice (Alternatively, you may use 1 3⁄4 lbs. fresh bing cherries, stemmed and pitted, or 1 1⁄2 lbs. frozen bing cherries with 2 3⁄4 cups sour or regular cherry juice.)
    1⁄2 tsp. kosher salt
    1 cinnamon stick
    1 1⁄2"-thick slice of lemon
    1 8-oz. container sour cream

Directions

  1. Add jars of cherries, with their juice, to a 4-quart saucepan. Add salt, cinnamon stick, and lemon. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer until cherries are soft, about 5 minutes.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together sour cream and 1⁄4 cup of hot cherry liquid from pan. Remove pan from heat; stir in sour cream mixture. Chill the soup.

Serves 4 to 6 as a dessert.
