Meggyleves: Hungarian Cherry Soup

I have been on a soup kick of late! Namely, Hungarian soups for my series over on Lot18. Several weeks ago I made a spicy cauliflower soup and earlier this week I prepared one of my favorite staple soups that always makes it's way into our kitchen around the holidays — Hungarian cherry soup.

This recipe was my grandmother's and is really quite simple to make — it basically requires heating some cherries and tempering egg yolks and sour cream.

As you can see from the photo above the color of this soup really makes for a festive starter with your holiday meals. It is easy to prepare ahead and can be served warm or cold — my preference is cold. I hope you will try this soup and let me know your preference to serve it. Hot or cold?

  1. My grandmother also used to make this soup, especially in the summer, we had about three sour-cherry trees in our garden. I love it and cook it a few times a year. My recipe (my grandmother's) is exactly the same, only I use fresh sour cherries (or frozen ones in the winter) and add a cinnamon stick and about 3 cloves :)
