When I think summer, I think berries. I looveeeee berries, and I wish they tasted this fresh all year long. Unfortunately they don’t, and along with not tasting as good in the winter months, they also increase in cost. So, seize them while you can! This recipe has a good amount of sugar, and I chopped it down from the original recipe. Next time I will probably only use 1/4 cup though because it was still pretty sweet. Adjust that to your preferences :)
