Wild Blueberry Soup Recipe
Marjorie Drucker created this recipe. Marjorie and her husband Paul own the New England Soup Factory restaurants in Boston. When I read about her series of chilled soups, I just had to blend them into our fruit course offerings at the Palmer House Inn. They are smooth, refreshing and so nutritious on a warm Autumn morning.
Serves 8 to 10
- 3 pints of fresh blueberries
- 4 cups cranberry-blueberry juice blend or plain cranberry juice
- ¾ cups of white wine
- 1 cup of orange juice
- 1 tablespoon of orange zest
- ½ teaspoon of cinnamon
- ½ cup of packed brown sugar
- 2 cups of sour cream
- ¼ teaspoon of salt
Wild Blueberry Soup Recipe Directions:
In a 6-quart soup pot, place the blueberries, cranberry-blueberry juice, wine, orange juice, zest, cinnamon and brown sugar. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce the heat to medium and simmer for 12 to 15 minutes. Remove from heat and puree the soup in the pot with a hand-held blender until the ingredients are mixed. With the blender running add the sour cream, one cup at a time. Puree the mixture until it is smooth and season with the salt. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours before serving.
I enjoy serving the soup in parfait dishes with an edible flower floating on top.
