Every Family has their version of Sour Cherry Soup. It is a special
seasonal treat in Hungary when the cherries are ripe. Sour Cherries have a
wonderful flavor when cooked. Some families like to make their soup with
sweet cream instead of sour cream. Some add a little sherry. How ever you
make this soup, you will enjoy its refreshing flavor. Regards, June Meyer.

Into a soup pot containing 1 1/2 quarts of boiling water add fresh or
frozen sour cherries and granulated sugar. Stir and cook. In a separate
bowl mix flour, sour cream, salt and beat until smooth. Add to flour mix, 1
cup of hot cherry sugar mix. Stir vigorously. Now add the flour, sour cream
and hot cherry mix into the pot of hot soup, stir well and simmer for 5 or
6 minutes until it thickens. Cover the soup and let cool. Keep cover on
while it chills in refrigerator and it will not form a thick skin. Serve
very cold.
