Berries and cream


"Nothing like keeping it simple," says Turner. "You can't make berries any better than just picked."

You'll need

500 gm strawberries (about 2 punnets), trimmed, larger berries quartered, smaller berries halved 125 gm blueberries (about 1 punnet) 60 gm brown sugar, or to taste 300 gm thickened Jersey cream (see note)

Method

  • 01
  • Place berries and half the sugar in a bowl, stir occasionally until sugar dissolves, then set aside to macerate (20-30 minutes).
  • 02
  • Whisk cream until medium peaks form. Serve with berries sprinkled with remaining brown sugar to taste.

Note The Turners use Jonesy's Fresh Thickened cream, which comes from a small, family-owned dairy.
