With temperatures soaring over 100 degrees this summer, cool off with a Chilled Watermelon Soup recipe straight from the Pine Needles kitchen.
Chilled Watermelon Soup
1 large Watermelon
1 cup Sugar
2 tbs Salt
1/2 tsp Cayenne Pepper
1 & 1/2 C Cream or Half and Half
Hull out the large watermelon and run it through a food processor until it is smooth. Pour the watermelon juice through a strainer into a pot in order to remove the seeds or pulp. Bring watermelon juice to a boil and add Sugar, Salt, Pepper, and Cream. Heat until sugar is dissolved.
Cool soup at least 4 hrs before serving. Garnish with fresh pieces of watermelon.
