   Every Family has their version of Sour Cherry Soup. It is a special
 seasonal treat in Hungary when the cherries are ripe. Sour Cherries have a
 wonderful flavor when cooked. Some families like to make their soup with
 sweet cream instead of sour cream. Some add a little sherry. How ever you
 make this soup, you will enjoy its refreshing flavor. Regards, June Meyer.
 Into a soup pot containing 1 1/2 quarts of boiling water add fresh or
 frozen sour cherries and granulated sugar. Stir and cook. In a separate
 bowl mix flour, sour cream, salt and beat until smooth. Add to flour mix, 1
 cup of hot cherry sugar mix. Stir vigorously. Now add the flour, sour cream
 and hot cherry mix into the pot of hot soup, stir well and simmer for 5 or
 6 minutes until it thickens. Cover the soup and let cool. Keep cover on
 while it chills in refrigerator and it will not form a thick skin. Serve
 very cold.      Note: to make Cherry Soup with Sweet Cream or Meggy Leves
 Mas Modon Cook a   1 inch stick of cinnamon with the cherries, and
 substitute sweet cream for   the sour cream. Discard cinnamon stick when
 done cooking soup. Chill as   above.  WALT         If you try one of my
