JSCooks-the one thing I forgot to mention in my review of this wonderful soup is that adding the creme fraiche or sour cream at the end really adds something special to the soup. I used creme fraiche because I always seem to have it hanging out in my frig waiting for something special.

ChezSuzanne -- thank you so much for your lovely review. I'm so glad you enjoyed the soup. It's a personal favorite. Time to put in a lemon verbena plant in your garden or window -- it's such a versatile herb, and really does contribute lemon-y as well as herbal flavor. Of course, creme fraiche improves pretty much everything it touches. :)

Well as luck would have it, a friend just gifted me with a lemon verbena plant :-). But you're right, creme fraiche improves pretty much everything! I'm looking forward to making this soup again.

Lovely presentation! I also did a series of cold soup recipes for the cherry theme and froze them as well for desserts. I did a stone fruit recipe for this without puree. I love the chunkiness of the fruits for a rustic version. But you have captured the elegance here.
