« on: October 15, 2012, 01:06:42 AM »
For 4-6 servings

500g (~1lb) sour cherries, pitted- You can use fresh or preserved.
2-3 cinnamon sticks
4 tbsp sugar
6 whole cloves
pinch of salt
1c sour cream, yoghurt or devonshire cream to thicken
1 tablespoon of flour
100mL (1/2c) red wine (Use apple juice with a dash of cider vinegar if going booze-free)

Bring to the boil 1L water, cherries and sugar. Add cinnamon and cloves tied in cheesecloth and reduce to a simmer.  Cook for 10-12 minutes, or until cherries are soft.

Remove spice bundle.  Whisk together the flour and cream, temper with 1cup of hot liquid.  Stir into the soup.  Barely simmer for about 5 minutes until thickened.  Add wine at the end.

Serve chilled.  Yum!

Bon appétit! (Jó étvágyat!)

How interesting - this may be a silly question, but when is this meant to be served?

Hmmmmm
