Why I Love This Recipe

With blueberries in good supply right now I thought you might like a cold fruit soup to prepare for the coming of summer. This is from one of my favorite cookbooks, Cold Soups, Warm Salads.


Ingredients You'll Need

3 cups fresh blueberries
2 cups water
1/4 cup sugar
6 to 8 sprigs of fresh mint or 3 TBS dried
Juice of one lemon (there's that Meyer's lemon tree again)
1/2 cup dry red wine (if you wouldn't drink it don't cook with it)
1/2 cup sour cream or plain yogurt


Directions

In a medium saucepan combine the berries, water, sugar and mint. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer about 20 minutes or until the blueberries are soft. Add the red wine after 10 minutes. Remove from heat and using your kitchen wand, reduce everything until it is very smooth.


Add the lemon juice, let cool slightly and chill in refrigerator until ready to serve.


Just before serving, whisk a little of the soup into the sour cream or yogurt. Pour it all back into the soup mixture and blend well. Garnish with a small dollop of sour cream.
