Cherry Soup

One of the things about putting a Hungarian tenant family in the Dubois Files children's books is that I have to learn more about Hungarian culture! Seriously, I know practically nothing about it. Thank goodness for the internet.

In The Hitchhiker, the book taking place in cherry season... the kids are helping with fruit sorting... I went looking for a Hungarian recipe that used cherries. I had no idea if they even had cherries there. Well, they do, and there is a popular traditional cold fruit soup made with tart cherries! Cherry Soup.

Hungarian Cherry Soup

It's really good. Of course, I like most everything cherry, but it's spicy and refreshing.

It's not too complicated to make, so the recipe is going in the book as one of the craft/skill items.

I think I have never enjoyed this one, but since I like cherries-- a lot -- I suspect I'd relish it.
