"I made this last night and it is chilling right now to serve this evening at a dinner party. I tasted it this morning and it is excellent. It was easy to make and took very little time at all."

"this recipe is much better without the ginger, nutmeg and cinnamon. The spices completely overpowered the dish and made it taste like something at Thanksgiving. I will make again but will omit the spices"

"Probably will make this again. I have 3 other fruit soup recipes I want to try. It was overly orangey for me. Also, I used Ceylon cinnamon."
