Nutrition Tips

As a variation, you can also make the soup with fruits of the forest, strawberries or a mix thereof.

This slightly sour cold cherry soup tastes best in the heat of summer, and is easy to prepare. A Hungarian summer treat: tasty and refreshing, it cools and hydrates.

Directions

Drain the liquid from the jar of cherries.

Bring the water and fruit to a boil.

Season with sugar, cloves, lemon and a pinch of salt to taste and simmer for about 20 minutes.

Mix the flour and cream in a bowl until smooth. Add a ladleful of the soup and mix well (this prevents the mixture from curdling in the soup).

Pour the mixture into the saucepan and simmer for another 3-4 minutes.

Remove the cloves and slices of lemon before serving.

The soup can be eaten hot or cold, but in summer tastes best cold. So it's worth the wait to chill it before enjoying. 

Serve the soup on its own or with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.
