Summer is the time for fresh berries - take advantage of this bounty to enjoy a range of treats
Strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, and blackberries are all bursting forth at farmers' markets, fruit stands, and in the grocery stores. It's simply hard to pass up all these delicious treats. Even though they're available frozen or canned or packaged throughout the year, the fresh ones are almost always best.
Think of all the
delicious drinks, desserts, and snacks that can be made from fresh berries.
There are smoothies and ice cream, of course. Freeze them and serve
them up as a really cold bite.
Tea infusion is another way to enjoy the juice. Make tea as usual. Then juice the berries in a blender and strain out the seeds. Mix with the tea, add sugar, a little lemon, and you have a new sensation! Fruit juice works well or you can simply slice up the fruit and allow it to "steep" with the tea, then strain.
Berries are perfect for breakfast added to cereal. For afternoons and after-dinner, keep shortcake and pound cake on hand and just add a little whipped cream or create alternating cake, fruit, and pudding layers.
