TNT Cold Peach Soup

This is a favorite around here not for the kids tho as it has 2 cups of sparkling wine peel 4 ripe peaches remove the pits. Puree in f/p or blender transfer the puree to an enameled saucepan. Add the 2 cups of sparkling wine, I would think 7-up might work for the kids,now also add 1 cup water,1 Tab. sugar, 1/4 tea each of curry and cinnamon and 3 whole cloves.Bring to boil and then simmer stirring 10 min. Remove the cloves and let the soup cool. Chill for at least 4 hours then serve in chilled pretty bowls and garnish with thin slices of orange. serves 4

Sounds good. You know, I have never made cold soup of any kind. I really haven't ate much cold soup either, but I think I would really like this one. May have to give this a try. Thanks.

Kades: Gorgeous Recipe - Thank you for Posting

Buon Giorno, Good Morning Kadesma,

What a gorgeous seductive and delightful cold soup ... Just came from Farmer´s Market and bought a 2 kilos of stunner peaches ...

What is most interesting; I had Peach Gazpacho in Aragón, Spain, which is 2 1/2 hours north of Madrid Capital ... The species is called Colanda Peaches, which are specially grown without Fuzz ! This historical method is that the farmers, cover the fruit with paper bags, which reduces the fuzz growth on the fruit ! And thus, are smooth in skin ...

The other Mediterranean Peach producer is Northern Greece.

Of course, we always have Prosecco White Sparkling Wine ...

Thank you for posting.

Kind regards, have lovely August,
Ciao, Margi.

English question: why is it called soup, wouldn't it be called compote? And if not what is the difference?

Compote: French dessert with crumbs

Buonasera Charlie,

Good afternoon.

A compote: is a French dessert made with crumbs and fruit

( SEE www.Wikipedia.com/compote )

We truly enjoyed this delightfully refreshing sparkling wine peach beverage, sort of a lite punch ... it is truly lovely and very aromatically fragrant of ripe peaches ...

Have lovely August,
Margi.

Charlie, I have know idea why it's called soup instead of a compote. I don't get myself into these things. We use spoons so to me it's soup. If someone has any idea post it for me. And Charlie, i'm sorry.

Charlie,

It does have a Gazpacho cold soup texture however, the Sparkling Wine adds a Punch like Texture ... Sort of in between the two ...

Truly lovely ...

Margi.

Charlie,

www.freedictionary.com/soup

Charlie, it is not really according to definition as it is not made from meat, vegetables or poultry or fish. However, it does contain the pieces of the fruit ... The thing is, I would of called it a GAZPACHO because of the Sparkling Wine ...

A punch: it is not eaten with a spoon ... it is drunk from a glass or stemware.

Hope this assists.

Margi.
