Greenbrier Peach Soup

Adapted from The Greenbrier Cookbook
8 servings


The Greenbrier has its own peach orchard. If you don't have access to Greenbrier peaches, substitute any fresh, extremely ripe peaches. Note that this recipe requires 1 cup reserved peach juice from the fresh peaches.


2-1/2 pounds fresh peaches, peeled and pitted
   with juices reserved (about 4 cups peaches,
   roughly chopped; 1 cup juice)
1-1/2 cups sour cream
1/2 cup pineapple juice
1/2 cup orange juice
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup dry sherry
1 cup reserved peach juice
8 mint springs


1. Combine the peaches and sour cream in a blender and work to a purée.

2. Add the remaining ingredients, except the mint, and blend until very smooth.

3. Transfer to a bowl, cover and chill thoroughly, at least 2 hours up to overnight.

4. To serve, stir the soup and ladle into chilled bowls. Garnish with mint.
