Cold Cherry SoupSweet soup — that’s meant to be served cold. If you’ve never cooled off with a dish like that on a hot summer evening, try this sweet and spicy soup made with fresh cherries, quality maple syrup, and a touch of black currant liqueur. Cherries are at their best now, at least where I live. Drawing juice from whole fresh ginger may be an uncommon process in western cooking, but it isn’t difficult; you can find instructions here. The recipe comes to us from the Hawthorne Inn in Concord, Massachusetts, a comfortable and traditional place for you to get away to.


Cold Cherry Soup


  1. 8 cups fresh Bing cherries
  2. 1 & ½ cups orange juice
  3. ½ cup excellent maple syrup
  4. 2 tablespoons cassis [black currant liqueur]
  5. 1 tablespoon juice of fresh ginger root, grated & strained
  6. 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  7. ½ teaspoon lemon peel
  8. Sour cream or creme fraiche
  1. Pit cherries. Peel ginger, grate & strain till you have 1 tablespoon of juice. Place liquid ingredients in saucepan & whisk. Add cherries, cover & boil. Stir once, re-cover and boil for 90 seconds. Remove from heat & chill for two hours.
  2. Serve in individual bowls with a dollop of sour cream or creme fraiche: you may garnish with a fresh mint sprig.
