Raspberry-Cranberry Soup

Served hot, this beautiful tangy soup helps beat the winter "blahs". On a sunny summer day, it's refreshing cold. I have fun serving it because people are so intrigued with the idea of a fruit soup. Even doubters scrape their bowls clean. -Susan Stull, Chillicothe, Missouri

    I thought this fruit soup was delicious, despite my husband's protests that it does not count as a soup! The lack of meat and veggies suited me just fine. I didn't add a full cup of sugar because it seemed like an awful lot. I will say it took me about an hour to make this, but I am kind of a slow cook anyway. I recommend this recipe!
