Because of their rich flavor, cold fruit soups are Scandinavian favorites, and no doubt this will be a hit with you as well. This came from Betty Crocker's Soups and Stews. I have not tried this recipe.
- 4 cups fresh raspberries
- 1⁄2 cup sugar
- 1⁄4 cup dry red wine or 1⁄4 cup cranberry juice
- 1 cup sour cream
- Place raspberries, sugar and wine in blender. Cover and blend until smooth. Stir in sour cream. Cover and refrigerate 1-2 hours until cold.
- Serve with dollops of sour cream and raspberries if desired.
My son and I made this for Christmas dinner, a heavy hors d'oeuvre affair. Ours was a very unusual offering, yet very festive as well. We served it in little juice glasses set out on a tray, each serving garnished with a single berry. Those who tried it either liked it quite a bit, or not at all. But we enjoyed it, and took home what was left over, which was just as good the next day. Full disclosure: My son owns a Vitamix, which makes this soup much smoother than one would obtain with a conventional blender, which cannot pulverize the raspberry seeds. Also, we used frozen raspberries, which are packaged by weight, not by volume, so we had to readjust the amounts accordingly.
