Blueberry soup

Souper December taking a bit of a dive, as we have had enough main course soups to last for a while now - but when I get home after 7 I don't often fancy cooking a starter and a main for the hungry .. so opted for a main (chili) and something new - a sweet soup.  Have seen lots of fruit soups chilled, but didn't fancy that, so tried this blueberry hot soup - it's delish, like hot thick ribena.  Chuck blueberries, sugar and cranberry juice in a pan with a squeeze of lemon juice and a small chunk of ginger.  Simmer and squash, simmer and seive.  Return to the heat and thicken with 1 tbsp cornflour slaked in water.  Next time I might not thicken it, and just have it as a hot fruit drink - but it was very warming, slightly spicy, velvety fruitiness.  Some left - and I think I might try it (hot or cold) over ice cream....  Recipe (more or less) from here
