24 oz, jar, pitted tart variety
Fresh lemon juice
1 cup(s), lime variety
- Put the cherries in a sieve set over a medium bowl. Remove 1/2 cup of the cherries and set aside; reserve the juice. Put the remaining cherries in a food processor and puree until smooth. Pour the cherry puree through a sieve set over the same bowl, pressing hard on the solids to extract as much liquid as possible. Stir in the reserved cherry juice, the lemon juice, and salt.
- Refrigerate, covered, until the soup is thoroughly chilled, at least 2 hours or up to 1 day. Ladle 1⁄2 cup soup into each of 4 shallow soup bowls. Garnish each serving with 2 tablespoons of the reserved cherries and a 1⁄4-cup scoop of the sorbet. Serve at once. Yields (1⁄2 cup soup, 2 tablespoons cherries, and 1⁄4 cup sorbet per serving.
