My grandmother had talked about her cherry soup recipe for years, so when I received some of our state's famous Door County cherries, I just had to try it. My family liked it so well that I froze several quarts so we could enjoy it all winter!

"This is one of my favorites! Don't let the looks fool you! This recipe is not too sweet and can be eaten as dessert, snack or part of your meal. It freezes so well too!"

"I am not a huge dessert fan and very seldom do I even bother with making one. When I saw the picture of this and read the recipe I was anxious to give it a try. I served it as part of our Christmas dinner and it was a great hit. Everyone loved it and and asked for a copy of the recipe. This is something that I will make again!"
