I love this time of year when cherries are plentiful..Love their color..shape..taste..
I found this that intrigued me..
The addition of the red wine just sounded so delicious..and it is..
A perfect soup:) As Dominique calls it.."Soupe Aux Cerises"~
Ingredients are simple..
Some red wine too of course..
and le tour est joué..

For 500 gr of cherries..
