Not the prettiest berries...
I was given some AMAZING fresh berries (black, blue, and raspberries), and have been feasting on them all week. I was given wayyyyy to many though, and now I have guests coming over tonight so I figured they could help me to finish them off. They have gotten a little old looking, but if anything taste better then they did before. I already have my main courses set, so I am looking for a dessert that will highlight the berry flavor flavor but hide the fact that they may look a little old. Maybe some sort of light creme? Any suggestions or recipes would be great.
p.s. the dessert doesn't need to contain all three, there is no way I will finish any of them so i already plan on making preserves with the extra.
You could do a granita, pretty easy in the freezer - a little booze helps it from getting to solid and grainy. Maybe a raspberry with Grand Marnier?
Maybe a blueberry and black pepper sauce over angel food cake?
Or do little pot de creme with berries in the bottom (chocolate and raspberry, lemon and blueberry, orange blackberry).
Sounds like a fun problem!
Or get creative and roll out a large flour tortilla, spread a row of berries in the middle, drizzle with some custard and chocolate, roll them up, and fry them so that they are just crisp on the outside with a nice light brown hue. And, voila, berry dessert rolls. Or fruity cannelloni?
