Blackberry Desserts

Blackberries, Apricots and Rosemary with Sauterne
May 13, 2014

8 oz blackberries, rinsed
8 oz fresh apricots (3 or 4 depending on size), rinsed, pit removed and cut into 6 or 8 slices
2 cups sauterne or a sweet wine
4 rosemary sprigs
1/3 cup sugar
4 oz crème fraîche

Equipment needed
1 1/2- or 2-quart saucepan
measuring spoons
large storage container


Making a simple syrup with the sauterne, sugar and rosemary results is an intense herbal flavor – a perfect marriage with the blackberries and apricots.

In the saucepan, add 2 cups of sauterne, sugar and rosemary sprigs. Turn heat to medium high, bring liquid to a boil and lower heat so that liquid reduces by half. When liquid has been reduced, discard rosemary sprigs, strain the rosemary liquid into a container and chill in refrigerator.

Place blackberries and sliced apricots in a large bowl and add chilled rosemary liquid. Marinate for at least 4 hours or overnight.

To serve. Divide berries and apricots into four equal servings in a bowl. Scoop 1 tablespoon of crème fraîche on top of berries.  Enjoy!
