2-3 cinnamon sticks
4 tbsp sugar
6 whole cloves

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.
