It’s June, that magical time of year when blueberries, blackberries, and peaches are abundant in North Carolina, while we can still take advantage of strawberries, raspberries, and rhubarb coming in from other parts of the country. With those six ingredients you can mix and match to make a world of amazing, fresh, healthy desserts.
Toss the Cool Whip and those yellow sponge cups out, my friends! Here are some recipes to get you started imagining what you might whip up for dessert this weekend. Or, make your favorite trusty cake or tart recipe and use the berries to decorate. You can’t go wrong with fresh berries on top.
