It’s finally summer and my favorite time of year- berry season! Give me all the berries…strawberries, raspberries, cherries and blackberries. It brings a smile to my face when the little fruit stands on the side of the road that have been shuttered for nine months are now brimming with fresh fruit. There is SUCH a difference in flavor between store-bought berries and local, freshly-picked berries. No comparison, really.
We recently had family in town from Illinois and it was such a pleasure to share this unique California experience with them. There we all stood with our cartons of berries, devouring them in the gravel parking space with juice dripping down our chin. Messy, but the best. So, with our house constantly full of summer fruit, I decided to find another way to use them instead of eating them straight from the refrigerator. And since it’s going to be over 100 degrees every day this week (!!), let’s do some homemade froyo!
