Chilled Black Cherry Soup

Submitted by: BJABROY

Introduction

Very smooth, delicious summer soup. This makes a great appetizer before a meal. It would compliment a pork tenderloin meal perfectly. Very smooth, delicious summer soup. This makes a great appetizer before a meal. It would compliment a pork tenderloin meal perfectly.

  • I love cherry soup! My Oma had a big cherry tree and would make this every summer. But we ate with vanilla pudding or gries (semolina) pudding. - 2/9/12

  • This was an excellent & elegant dessert. I was a little hesitant about the pits & stems part, but it was like making cherry stock! Also instead of drizzling the yogurt mixture at the end, I spooned three quinelles (TBS) of peach sorbet in the middle of bowl which made a beautiful presentation - 7/12/09
