This Blueberry-Cranberry Soup makes an elegant summer dinner. The recipe is based on a Swedish dish for which lingonberries normally would be used. If you can find any, use them. Otherwise, cranberries make a fine American adaptation to this dish. This soup keeps very well, and leftovers are wonderful stirred into plain or vanilla yogurt.
