Cold sour cherry soup

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
3 cups Cold water
1 cup Sugar
1 \N Cinnamon stick
4 cups Pitted sour cherries or drained canned sour cherries
1 tablespoon Arrowroot
¼ cup Heavy cream, chilled
½ cup Dry red wine, chilled

In a 2-quart saucepan, combine the water, sugar and cinnamon stick.

Bring to a boil and add the cherries. Partially cover and simmer over low heat for 40 minutes if the cherries are fresh or 10 minutes if the cherries are canned. Remove the cinnamon stick. Mix the arrowroot and 2 Tbsp of cold water into a paste, then beat into the cherry soup. Stir constantly, bringing the soup almost to a boil.

Reduce the heat and simmer about 2 minutes, or until clear and slightly thickened. Pour into a shallow glass or stainless steel bowl, and refrigerate until chilled. Before serving, stir in the cream and wine.
