I’m avoiding the stores today. Its too frustrating to see all those beautiful fresh berries packaged up in plastic baskets and bags. Tomorrow I’ll go to the Farmer’s Market to restock my fridge. At least there I can buy bulk fruit in cardboard boxes or fill up my own bags.
So instead of shopping for fresh fruit today, I decided to dig into my freezer and see what I could come up with for an afternoon treat. There wasn’t much there except frozen grapes and cranberries. That started me thinking about how refreshing the combined flavours of sweet and sour are.
Wow! Did I ever come up with a wonderful recipe! In fact it was so good that I didn’t want it to end … so I made a second batch …
