In some European countries, fruit soups are served as a dessert, but our guests seem to prefer them as a prelude to dinner.


2-1/2 cups fresh blueberries
1 tablespoon cornstarch
2 cups cold water
2 tablespoons sugar
1-1/2 cups Marsala wine
1/2 cup sour cream


Blend the cornstarch with a little of the cold water; then add the rest of the water, blueberries, sugar and Marsala wine. Simmer for about 15 minutes, or until the blueberries are soft. Set aside for 10 minutes to cool. Whirl in a blender until smooth or put the mixture through a food mill. Chill in the refrigerator.

Stir in the sour cream. Serve in well-chilled bowls.
