Nectarine Soup

Nectarines and peaches, or a combination, are equally good in this cold, smooth, sweet soup. When our girls were little, though, we only served them small amounts, because the soup is quite alcoholic. You can even serve this soup as a light dessert, sprinkled with toasted pistachios or pecans.


Yield: 4-6 servings

Pit, peel, and halve the fruit. Add wine, honey and lemon; cover and boil on stove or in microwave for about 30 minutes. Puree in food processor, season to taste with additional honey and/or cinnamon. Serve cold.
