Top Review by Sydney Mike

Easy preparation & a nice tasting soup! This was just for myself, so I enjoyed it both hot & cold, but prefer it cold! Used pitted prunes, golden raisins & one large, not terribly tart lemon for a great tasting soup! Thanks for sharing! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Stone Soup: A Cooking Game]
