Berry Creme Fraiche Soup with Edible Flowers
- 1 cup Raspberries
- 1 cup Blueberries
- 1 cup Blackberries
- 1/2 cup cranberry-raspberry juice [with no added sugar]
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 cup crème fraiche
- 2 tablespoons sugar, or to taste
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
- Edible flowers, such as Johnny jump-ups, nasturtiums, small pansies, or lavender (Do not select roadside flowers or flowers from the nursery or florist as these may have been sprayed with something not safe for consumption. Specialty food markets often have edible flowers.)
Place berries, juice and water in blender. Blend at high speed until smooth. Add crème fraiche, sugar and lemon juice and blend again until smooth.
Strain the soup. Refrigerate at last 4 hours until very cold. Serve with a dollop of creme fraiche, a few fresh berries and a scatter of edible flowers.
I saw roses mentioned for angelkin, but I imagine faekin and beekin might enjoy it, or really anyone who likes flowers or sweetness :)

Hey, you got any raw flower-based recipes for an equine/pony/fictivekin? I know candied violets and the simple stuff like putting petals in salads and sandwiches but is there anything more interesting?
We have a whole flowers tag for recipes with flowers in them. Is that what you’re looking for?
makes about 1 liter pitcher
1 liter soda water, chilled
1/2 cup elderberry flower syrup, chilled
1 lime, juiced
About 1/3 cup blackberries, washed
1/4 mint leaves, bruised
Whisk the soda water and elderberry flower syrup with the lime. Stir in the blackberries and muddled mint leaves and serve immediately.
This is also very nice with lemon juice and strawberries.
