Chilled Cranberry Soup

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Sydney Mike

This recipe comes from the 2004 cookbook, The Joy of Cranberries: The Tangy Red Treat, that I received from my first cookbook swap partner in Zaar! Preparation time does not include the more than 4 hours needed to cool & chill the soup before serving.

I have leftover frozen cranberries from the holidays although it states to use fresh the frozen seemed to work fine, this tastes like cranberry sauce only in the form of a soup, loved it thanks for sharing Syd!
