Sweet and sour cherry soup


  • 500g sour cherries (or cherries, apricots, plums, gooseberries)
  • 100g sugar
  • 2l water
  • 1 stick cinnamon
  • 6 cloves
  • 1 stick vanilla (or 1 tbs vanilla sugar)
  • 1-2 egg yolks
  • 1-2 tablespoon icing sugar
  • 1-2 tablespoon cream


Step 1
Take out the pits from the sour cherries and spread sugar over them. Let them rest over night or at least for a few good hours - the fruits will leave a delicious syrup that you can enjoy with mineral water and ice cubes - the perfect homemade summer juice!
Step 2
Put the fruits in cold water, and add the cinnamon, cloves, vanilla and salt. Bring to boil and cook them for about 8-10 minutes. Let it cool down aside.
Step 3
In a cup mix the egg yolks with the icing sugar until it becomes a nice yellow paste. Pour the cream and stir until homogenous.
Step 4
Once the soup is cold, add the cream-egg mixture and stir. It is now ready to serve.
