This tasty adult dessert is from James Beard winner Jeni Britton Bauer’s “Jeni’s Ice Creams at Home” (Artisan Books, $23.95).
Farmers Market Sundae
3 cups blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, halved strawberries or halved, pitted cherries
5 to 6 tablespoons sugar, divided
1 tablespoon honey
2 tablespoons tawny port or Champagne, or 1 tablespoon Grand Marnier
1 cup heavy cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Lemon frozen yogurt
6 sprigs fresh mint, basil or lemon balm
Toss the berries with 4 tablespoons sugar, honey and wine, and let sit for 30 minutes to 6 hours to macerate. The berries will create their own lovely syrup.
Chill a large metal bowl in the refrigerator for 15 minutes. Then add cream, 1 to 2 tablespoons sugar and vanilla, and whip to soft peaks.
Divide the macerated fruit among 6 plates or wide-mouthed Mason jars. Top with 2 small scoops frozen yogurt. Garnish with whipped cream and an herb sprig.
Yield: Serves 6.
