All the signs of a classic American summer are here -- our blueberry bushes are ripening, there’s a BBQ every weekend, and we’re breaking out the flag for July Fourth.
With Independence Day around the corner, it’s a fitting time for a red, white and blue dessert, making use of what’s colorful and in season – strawberries, raspberries, cherries and/or blueberries. Stacks of berry containers are filling my fridge right now – finding their way into salads, desserts and best of all – enjoying them as is. Our local chefs are using these sweet fruits too – keep reading for highlights of how berries are being dished out at Main Line restaurants.
Why hello beautiful berries...
This light-as-air summer berry trifle is so simple, looks stunning (and patriotic), and attracted so many compliments at recent family events, that I must share it with you. Make your pudding from scratch, bake an angel food cake, and whip your own cream if you must – but all-American Jell-O pudding and Cool Whip make this easy breezy … giving you more time to sit back, relax and enjoy the summer.
