Okay, I know I said I was posting recipes on Fridays, but I have some special events planned over the next couple of Fridays, so I’m doing a recipe post today…
See, I love berries – Strawberries, Blueberries, Blackberries – I love them all! This recipe is one of my favs and a great way to enjoy summer fruit.
Make a syrup of 3 tablespoons sugar, 1/3 cup water and about 5 fresh mint leaves. Heat until the sugar is fully dissolved and let simmer for about 6 minutes. Cool for at least 30 minutes.
While the syrup is cooling, combine 6 cups of sliced nectarines, 1 cup raspberries and 1 cup blueberries. (You can adjust the fruit combos and amounts to suit your personal taste)
Pour cooled syrup over the fruit and lightly toss. ENJOY!
