Snap, Sizzle & Cook

Sharing my love of food

Chilled Cherry Soup

My friend Nicola from the blog http://running-on-coffee.blogspot.com challenged me to make a recipe from the http://www.yourfamily.co.za magazine issued in July 1989.  I was 20 then which seems a lifetime ago.  I was definitely up for the challenge as cooking and baking is my thing.  I love spending time in the kitchen cooking for my family and trying out different recipes.  My challenge was to make a delicious dessert called a Chilled Cherry Soup.  It is so easy to make and the results are an amazing, fresh, delectable dessert.
