Recipe

Your favorite fresh berries in a light lemon syrup makes a refreshing summer dessert.

Yield: Makes 4 servings
Prep time: 15 Mins, Plus Cooling
Cooking time: 2 Mins

Ingredients

  • ½ cup sugar
  • Grated zest of 1 lemon
  • 3 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1¾ lb (800g) fresh strawberries, raspberries, and/or blueberries

Directions

 

1. Bring 1¾ cups water and the sugar to a boil in a small saucepan over medium heat, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Stop stirring, increase the heat to high, and boil for 2 minutes.

2. Remove from the heat. Stir in the lemon zest and juice and let cool completely.

3. Hull the strawberries and cut large ones in half. Combine the berries in a bowl and add the syrup. Stir gently to coat evenly. Cover and refrigerate until chilled. Spoon into bowls and serve.

Variation:

Winter Salad: Use sliced apples and segmented oranges, instead of berries. For an exotic version, try papaya and mango, and use lime in the syrup.

Notes

Prepare ahead: Chill the fruit and syrup for at least 1 hour before serving.

Good with a large dollop of whipped cream.
