Summer Recipes: Cold Cherry Soup

This soup recipe takes canned cherries, so there's no pitting involved.

On the heels of last week's very successful recipe for baked zucchini chips -- and they were really, really good...anybody else try them? -- the Patch research team has found another summer recipe on which we are crushing heavily.

This week, cool off with a bowl of soup. Yes, the same thing that keeps you warm in the winter can cool you off in the summer.

While we have tried to keep most of the recipes pretty healthy, this is not a low-calorie idea, but it's fun for an infrequent treat.
