Makrut Lime Macerated Berries

Not so much a recipe as a prescription , purely because I am sure these will increase your longevity based on the fact that happiness makes you live longer. Macerating fruits with botanicals and herbs adds such a whole new dimension. the hygroscopic nature of sugar draws the liquid from the fruits creating a simple syrup, that bleeds its sweet, herbaceous juice onto your tastebuds..

Feel free to experiment with any combination of fruits and herbs.


1kg Fresh Berries

3 tbsp Caster Sugar

4 Makrut Lime Leaves, chiffonade (finely shredded)


  1. Mix everything together and set aside for 30 minutes.

  2. Serve with cream, ice cream, granola or all three!
