Fruit Soup Recipe

Fruit soups have been enjoyed in various cultures for centuries and are a delightful way to savor the flavors of fresh fruits during the summer season. These refreshing soups can be traced back to ancient times when fruits were pureed and combined with other ingredients to create sweet and refreshing dishes. Today, I will share with you a delicious recipe for Fruit Soup that combines the goodness of plums, cherries, red currants, and raspberries. So let's dive into this delightful culinary adventure!

Fun Fact: Did you know that fruit soups are commonly enjoyed as a dessert in Scandinavian and Eastern European countries?

To begin with, gather the following ingredients:

- 2 pounds (approx. 900 grams) of plums, cherries, or red currants, and raspberries
- 1 pint (473 ml) of water
- 1 beaten egg yolk
- Sugar to taste

Now, let's start preparing our Fruit Soup:

1. Start by carefully picking and washing your choice of fruits – plums, cherries, or red currants, and raspberries. Ensure they are ripe and free from any defects.

2. Once your fruits are clean, place them in a saucepan along with a pint of water. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium heat, stirring occasionally.

3. Let the fruits boil until all the fruits have softened and the mixture has transformed into a thick pulp. This should take approximately 10-15 minutes.

4. Once the fruits have turned into a pulp, remove the saucepan from heat and let it slightly cool.

5. Meanwhile, in a separate bowl, beat the egg yolk until it becomes smooth and frothy.

6. Once the fruit mixture has cooled down a bit, gradually pour a small amount of the beaten egg yolk into the saucepan while continuously stirring. This will help to thicken the soup and add a creamy texture.

7. After incorporating the egg yolk, add sugar to taste. Keep in mind that the sweetness of the soup will vary depending on the natural sweetness of the fruits you chose.

8. Stir the soup well to ensure that all the ingredients are evenly combined.

9. To achieve a smooth and velvety texture, strain the soup through a fine-mesh sieve or cheesecloth. This step will remove any remaining fruit chunks or seeds.

10. Once strained, transfer the soup into a serving container and refrigerate for a few hours until it is thoroughly chilled.

11. Before serving, give the soup a gentle stir to ensure the flavors are well mixed.

12. Serve the Fruit Soup cold, ideally in chilled bowls or glasses, and garnish with a sprig of fresh mint or a few berries of your choice for an extra touch of freshness and visual appeal.

Now that you have prepared this delightful Fruit Soup, get ready to indulge in its refreshing flavors. This soup is perfect for hot summer days or as a light and healthy dessert option after a hearty meal. The combination of plums, cherries, red currants, and raspberries creates a harmonious balance of sweet and tart notes, making it a treat for your taste buds.
