Summer Berry and Basil Dessert


I warned you berry season was near! U-pick strawberry and raspberry farms are ripe for the picking here in the Pacific Northwest. Blueberries will follow in a couple months, as will salmon berries and huckleberries!

For this simple yet scrumptious and quite healthy dessert, throw together the berries of your choosing. The only extra ingredients are basil (necessary) and a tad bit of brown sugar (optional). Palates beware! This one’s a doozy.



strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, 2 basil leaves per person, pinch brown sugar per person

Serves: As many as you like! (But I have a hard time sharing this one.)


  1. Toss the berries in a dish.
  2. Mince the basil leaves
  3. Sprinkle a pinch of brown sugar.
  4. Mix the berry delight together.
  5. Serve, eat, enjoy!
