    Mom2Rose's Note:

    Source: "If you're looking for a soup that perfectly captures the spirit of Valentine's Day, this is it. Cherries have long been reputed to be an aphrodisiac, and the seductive flavor and texture and vibrant color of this soup make it the ideal prelude to any romantic meal. You may use high-quality German cherries in a jar, such as ARO Schattenmorellen, or sour cherries, in this recipe. Instead of sugar, you may wish to use some German cherry syrup to taste."
