Best Summer Fruit Dessert Ever
Fresh summer fruit of choice -
red raspberries, wild black raspberries, peaches, blueberries,
1/2 cup sugar
Best quality french vanilla ice cream
Wash and clean fruit. For strawberries, slice. Peaches, peel and slice. For peaches, you can add a tablespoon of fresh lemon juice. Blueberries, leave whole but mash about 1/4 of the berries. If using other fruit, prep as needed.
Add sugar to fresh fruit. Mix well. Allow fruit to macerate 2 hours. The fruit juices combined with the sugar will make a wonderful syrup. Longer maceration times will yield softer fruits and more liquid. Spoon fruit and syrup over vanilla ice cream. Serve immediately.
While this is a very simple dessert, it is a time where "less is more." Nothing better showcases the fresh, sweet flavors of summer fruits better than this.
