Food on Friday: Berries (and Currants)



ON


We are going to have a "berry" nice time this week creating a collection of recipes and ideas using all sorts of berries (including currants).

Types of berries – acai berry, bilberry, blackberry, blueberry, boysenberry, cloudberry, cranberry, currant, elderberry, goji berry, gooseberry, huckleberry, mulberry, raspberry, and, of course, strawberry.

According to Stephanie Alexander berries and currants go well with:


Amaretto Balsamic vinegar Brandy
Butter Chocolate Cointreau
Cream Crème fraiche Fresh white cheeses
Grand Marnier Ground almonds Honey
Ice-cream Kirsch Lemon juice
Light red wine Pastry Port
Sour cream Sugar

Update:  I have now created a Pinterest board for these links.  Click here if you would like to see it.

So put those links in via Mr Linky below.
