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


  • 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)


  • 1
    Place berries and half the sugar in a bowl, stir occasionally until sugar dissolves, then set aside to macerate (20-30 minutes).
  • 2
    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.
