Sour Cherry SoupFor Jewish people in Hungary, early summer is sour cherry season. Since it coincides with Shavuot, they created a flavorful sour cherry soup that is thickened with sour cream. Cinnamon and lemon zest provide a little zing to the flavor profile. The fruit and its juices give the soup a gorgeous pinkish-purple color. It is perfect for an appetizer or dessert.
