Summertime is filled with abundance–sunshine, rain (if we’re lucky), time to be outdoors and more. I’m lucky enough to have a small patch of backyard fruit that I’ve nurtured over the years. I also have friends who love to be outside in their gardens. Along with the blessings of abundant fruit, there is the challenge–what can we do with all of this?
My friend Sue used to host a blackberry-picking party every August at her home in Bellingham. There were always more berries than we were able to pick–true abundance. Here’s her recipe, along with photos of how I assemble the dessert. The blackberries were from my yard, and the peaches are from a friend. Such riches! Enjoy!
