Waiting, waiting for this recipe. It sounds so good, I'm already anticipating it as breakfast for the rest of the summer! Please don't forget. Ta.  

Peach and Cantaloupe Soup

I served a cold cherry & cantaloupe soup for years. Served it in the cantaloupe half-shells. Great presentation as first course for a summer meal.

I think this would be spectacular served that way.

Thanks so much for taking the time to write all that out. I will be making this right away.

Thanks for all the great posts. I've frozen some, made some peach preserves, and am ready to try many of the ideas suggested here. Strange thing, though -- just when I thought I was going to be sick of them, I sliced up three peaches for breakfast this morning. I guess I won't be getting tired of them soon!

Cakewalk -- probably not. I've never made it that way, although you could try. It certainly wouldn't be as fresh tasting as freshly made.

When I've made this in the past, I've sometimes dispensed with the buttermilk/oj ice cubes and sprinkled each serving with some finely diced peaches, a chiffonade of mint, and a few drops of mint simple syrup. Let me know if you can come up with anything else.
