Strawberry Soup "Hideg Szamocaleves" (non-dairy, but sounds like a lot of wine)
Cold fruit soups are popular in central Europe and this recipe for
strawberry soup from Hungary. Obviously it is not the sort of thing
one makes when strawberries are expensive, but at the peak of their
season it makes a good and unusual starter. Hull 4 punnets [?] of
strawberries into a large bowl (reserving about 6 to 10 strawberries,
depending on their size, for decoration), sprinkle generously with
sugar and crush thoroughly with a fork. Add 1 litre of liquid made up
of the juice of half a lemon and a 50-50 mix of red wine and water.
Taste and if necessary sweeten further or add a little more lemon
juice. Chill and decorate with sliced reserved strawberries before
serving, preferably in clear glass bowls. Makes 3 servings. From the
Sydney Morning Herald, 11/3/92.
