Cherry Soup with Egg Drops




Egg Drops (Minute Dumplings)


  1. If soup is to be served hot, prepare the egg drops first. Beat egg well.
  2. Stir in water then add flour, salt and nutmeg and beat vigorously with a fork or spoon until smooth.
  3. Bring the combined soup ingredients to a boil and drop the egg mixture from the tip of a teaspoon into the rapidly boiling soup. Cook for 5 minutes, and the dumplings will rise to the top when done.
  4. If soup is to be served iced, do not cook it with the egg drops. After bringing soup to a boil and cooking for 5 minutes, let it cool.
  5. Chill it in the refrigerator in a glass jar for at least 2 hours before serving.
  6. Just before serving, cook the egg drops in slightly salted water, using the same procedure as above.
  7. Drain them well before adding to the soup.
  8. A spoonful of sour cream may be added to each serving, stirred in or floated on top.
