Summer is that time when I want some fresh,colorful tasty but simple food in my menu. On this hunt of mine I came across a very delicious recipe- Hungarian chilled cherry soup, though a soup it can be served after meal as dessert. If you ask me I will tell you that this soup is now on my summer time dessert top list. So if you want to taste this Hungarian chilled cherry soup which can be served as dessert then follow the steps below and I am sure it will help you to chill.
Fresh cherry 3 cups Sugar 1/2 cup or to taste Corn starch 1 tea spoon Lemon juice 1 table spoon Lemon zest 1 tea spoon (grated) Sour cream 1/2 cup Salt a pinch Fresh mint leaves for garnish
For this recipe sour cherry is the best but if you are using sweet cherry then you can use alittle less sugar. Use 2 cup of ‘Hungarian’ sour and 1 cup of sweet ‘Lapin’.First pit cherries. Put a pan on flame add cherry and 4 cups of water. Bring to boil and cook until the cherries are tender. Make a smooth puree of this boiled cherry in your food processor. Then again put it in a pan.You can add few pitted sour cherries it gives a nice look.Then add sugar and let it boil. Then in a small bowl add cornstarch with little water and then add it to the soup. Let it cook for few minutes.Then add the lemon zest and lemon juice. Mix well and your cherry soup is done but befor putting off the flame taste it if it is too sour add more sugar and if it is too sweet add more lemon juice to get a balanced sweet and sour taste, this make Hungarian chilled cherry soup perfect. Serve chilled with dullops of sour cream and mint leaves.
BE HAPPY AND STAY HEALTHY.
