Europeans have a long used fruits in soups.  It’s more than an elegant dessert or appetizer, it’s a fantastic way to use up summer’s abundance or ‘less than perfect’ fruit.  This soup is wonderful with fresh or frozen cherries.  You can use dried cherries in a pinch, but reduce the sugar and increase your simmering time until the cherries are soft–enjoy!
