Sweet watermelon soup could be a good appetizer but the balance of herbs and a touch of sour watermelon make this soup a lot more than just sweet. This recipe is from a watermelon I cut up half and made this soup. Be careful not to put too much watermelon in your food processor or it will overflow. Taste the soup at every step and add more herbs depending on your personal preference. First cut the watermelon away from the white pith into smaller chunks with a spoon. Remove the blach seeds as much as you can. In small batches, blend the watermelon chunks in a food processor until smooth. If it is necessary filter it and remove the remaining seeds. With a spoon push over on a filter all the pulp into a large bowl. Repeat until all the watermelon has been used up. Add the sugar, salt, and chopped herbs into the soup, mix well. Let the soup chill in the refrigerator for at least 1-2 hours, preferably overnight. Before serving mix sour cream with sugar (1 tablespoon cream with 1 teaspoon sugar per person). Ladle watermelon soup into dishes, garnish with sweet sour cream and serve cold.
