Cherry Soup

Do you feel fall in the air yet? Ok, so maybe it's not in the air since it's hot and humid AF right now, but when August starts creeping up, I start jonesing for all things fall. I'm just going to admit that I've already been stalking the local stores here on the hunt for Halloween merchandise. And I've even found a few things to add to my collection. Thank you, At Home Stores. Even with the stifling daytime heat right now, nights are starting to get chillier. Pretty soon we'll be ready to make the swap from summer fruits to all things apple and pumpkin. I thought a great transitional recipe to ease us into a season change would be this Cherry Soup recipe from Golden Blossom Honey. 
 
 
This recipe lets you enjoy the summer flavor of cherry, but also pulls you into autumn with the dash of cinnamon, giving you a bit of the best of both seasons. One of our local wineries makes my favorite cherry wine, and since I do not like dry red wines, I did end up substituting that portion of the recipe for a cup of the wine that I always have on hand. That probably made this soup err on the sweeter side than the original recipe intended, but that was perfectly fine for my tastes. But, if you are a fan of the dry reds, by all means, leave the recipe as is and let me know how this soup turned out for you! 
 

2 (16 ounce) cans tart red pitted cherries
3 cups water
1 cinnamon stick
2 Tablespoons lemon juice
1 strip lemon peel
1/2 cup GOLDEN BLOSSOM HONEY
1 cup dry red wine
1 Tablespoon cornstarch
 

 
You can find this recipe, as well as many more delicious recipes right on the Golden Blossom Honey recipe page! Be sure to follow Golden Blossom Honey on Facebook and Twitter to stay up to date on new products and promotions.

Are you looking forward to the return of fall?

  1. Looks gorgeous, but I wouldn't eat it as sweet soup just sounds weird to me, but I know you have a sweeethtooth! I did order a few little ceramic pumpkins, hope they arrive soon. I should go to Novi Sad on Monday, so I might find something there as well, although I doubt it. It has been so hot here I'm fully exhausted from the freaking summer with temps over 50*C in my yard.

    1. I bought a ceramic pumpkin candy dish last year. It’s white, but I want to paint the stem gold and the pumpkin navy blue. I hope you find some fun treasures on your trip! Report back if you do.

    2. If I survive the trip LOL cannot stand this heat and travelling in tropical temps is just nasty. I did buy a little hand ventilator a few months ago and this is the first time I will use it! I will bring it with me on the bus trip LOL everybody will laugh at me, but eff them all. It is very cute, though, about a tootbrush sized.

    3. Why in God's name would anyone laugh at someone who is trying to stay cool in tropical heat? That sounds like a very practical gadget to have and nobody here would bat an eye at your use of it on public transport.

    4. Because it is not something you see often in the streets LOL
      People have always laughed at me throughout my life for being a fat walrus so I'm kinda used to it, not that it is ever pleasant...

    5. That's just baffling to me. I mean, I've seen some weird shit here, but it's unusual for people to openly laugh at others. Not fat. You misspelled fabulous.

    1. I’m usually a summer girl, but I’m just not feeling it this year. Too much rain in the beginning, now too much humidity. Plus I bought some new boots that I can’t wait to wear lol.

    1. Winter sucks, but it was mild for us last year. Maybe that’s why I’m trying to welcome fall already. I wonder if us Midwesterners would love summer so much if we moved to a southern state? Jason keeps reminding me that bug season is going to last much longer if we move south.

  4. It's the height of the Summer over here for us and I'm really loving it! As much as Fall is my favorite of the seasons, this Summer has been a little different (in a good way) in the "new normal". I've never heard of cherry soup either and I'm not sure I could bring myself to eat it. Although, I would totally pour that over some ice cream!

    1. You’ve been taking full advantage of summer, so I’m not surprised you want it to last longer. You get more bird sightings this time of the year too, I’m sure.

      This would totally make a great dessert topping. I was actually thinking cheesecake when I made it, but ice cream works too!

  5. What a great find in the recipe book. I have never heard of cherry soup, but it sounds good and I bet the honey is the perfect offset to the tart to make this just delicious.

  9. I have never heard of sweet soup before made with fruit! This sounds really interesting! :) Thanks for sharing!

    Hope you are having a nice weekend :) We will be at home enjoying this rare summer-like warmth in the middle of winter :)

    1. I'm glad you're having mild temps this winter! I do love fall, but I am not looking forward to the return of our winter soon!

  10. OMG it I’d humid. It feels like Savannah, GA in Omaha, NE. The air quality is so crappy too.

    I must be feeling back to school and fall. I made lentil soup last week, and was craving cabbage roll soup.

    I never thought yo add fruit to soup. I bet it’s good.

    1. Oooh, cabbage roll soup sounds amazing. I bet it wouldn't sit well with my tummy, but I may have to try my hand at making it this fall.
