fresh from the market

I love to visit our local farmer’s market on saturday mornings. the earlier the smaller the crowd. we were headed to san diego for the afternoon to spend time with peter’s daughter, melanie and her sweet family. my task was to bring dessert-she suggested fruit kabobs but that seemed so not very original to me so I decided on a triple berry stew with farm fresh berries served with ice cream

Farm Fresh Triple Berry Stew

1 basket fresh strawberries, slices

2 small baskets blackberries

1 small basket raspberries

1 cup sugar

1/2 cup water

2 tablespoons Chambord

your favorite vanilla ice cream…I love Breyer’s french vanilla

Add the sugar, water and half of each type of berry to a sauce pan. Bring to a boil and then simmer for about ten minutes. Remove from heat and add the rest of the berries and the Chambord. Delicious served warm or cold over vanilla ice cream


  1. Oh just delicious! I love it! Yum, yum, yum. I am jealous I didn't get to partake!

  2. The triple berry stew was definitely more delicious, and inventive than fruit kabobs! Adam was still talking about it on Sunday :). xo, Mel

  3. it is a repeatable recipe ams.
