Cold Apple Soup

For those living in the Northern Hemisphere with the promise of summer about to come colds soups are delicious and refreshing. For us in the Southern Hemisphere cold fruit soups make a good sweet.
The fruit should be ripe and can be over ripe.
Fruit Stock is made from fruit peel and stones or pips covered with water and boiled for an hour, then strained, and chilled before using.
1 lb 500g apples
2 pts 1lt fruit stock or water
1 lemon
8ozs 225g sugar
small stick of cinnamon
2 or 3 Tblsp dry semolina
Wash and peel the apples, cut into pieces and boil in 1 pt 500 mls of stock or water. Strain and rub through a sieve. Add remaining stock or water, grated lemon rind, lemon juice, sugar and cinnamon stick. Boil for 10 minutes. Stir in 2 Tblsp dry semolina and cook for 30 minutes. Take out the cinnamon stick. Cool in the refrigerator.
If the soup is to be used as a sweet add 3 Tbsp of dry semolina.
