RE: Canteloupe Soup
Bushie, here's how I did the strawberry soup. I'm sure it would work equally as well with other fruits.
2 qt. strawberries
1/2 C chardonnay
1/3 C sugar (maybe more, depending on the sweetness of the berries)
1/2 C half and half
Puree all ingredients in food processor and chill. To serve, place in bowls and top with champagne and a dollop of creme fraiche or whipped cream, and a few mint sprigs.
Any berry or melon can be substituted for the strawberries. Have fun! Experiment!
