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)
Mix everything together and set aside for 30 minutes.
Serve with cream, ice cream, granola or all three!
