well, i made my soup tonite! i used about 2/3 of a bottle of strawberry-cranberry juice as the basis of the soup, then added dried cherries, a lesser amount of dried cranberries, 6 or 7 dried peaces (which i will omit next time and use dried apricots instead.) i added a few drops of lime juice
and put it on the flame, covered, on low heat. when the fruit came to a slow boil and was getting nice and plump, i added a big orange, cubed, and a slice of the peel. later on, just towards the end of cooking, added a pear and an apple, both cubed. i took a bath , then the soup was ready. it turned out really good, nice and piping hot. so nice after being out in the cold so i could go to the grocery store. well worth it though. the broth turned from a light pink to a lovely red; the fragrance was great as the juice started heating up, too. i need to do some tweaking... more citrus and the replacement apricots.

Isn't that soup delicious? YUM!
It was so good the was you printed it, I am not certain I would want to change it. I am not fond of mint or cilantry, but I always use Italian parsley, I guess it would taste good with marjoram, thyme or a combination. I may experiment.

I've always been fascinated with fruit soups (I'm half Swedish and love looking for Swedish recipes), but I've never tried it. I would love one with either cherries or strawberries. Fruit soups sound so refreshing!

That is the great thing about these fruit soups, you can add what ever dried fruit you want to the mix. I always add a tablespoon of tapioca so that it thickens nicely. I like it warm over ice cream..
