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


  • 2 cups fresh or frozen cranberries
  • 2 cups unsweetened apple juice
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen unsweetened raspberries, thawed
  • 1/2 to 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 cups half-and-half cream
  • Whipped cream, additional raspberries and mint, optional


  1. In a large saucepan, bring cranberries and apple juice to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes. Press through a sieve; return to the pan. Also press the raspberries through the sieve; discard skins and seeds. Add to cranberry mixture; bring to a boil. Add the sugar, lemon juice and cinnamon; remove from the heat.
  2. Cool 4 minutes. Combine cornstarch and cream until smooth; gradually stir into the pan. Bring to a gentle boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Serve hot or chilled. Serve with whipped cream, raspberries and mint if desired.
