Drinks Heather Meldrom Post a comment

It is screaming hot outside and, for those of us who don't have the option of bobbing around in a pool or ocean all day (so....all of us, probably), we need to figure out as many ways as possible to keep our cool. The good news is that with summer heat comes sweet, juicy summer berries. Here are 3 drink recipes that put blackberries to good use. More

British Bites: Berry Trifle

British Bites Sydney Oland Post a comment

Sadly, summer is coming to an end—but there is just enough time to make one last trifle. A trifle is a classic British dessert made up of layers of fruit, cake, and custard, and often, but not always, some sort of liquor. More

Created by Rob Gourlay at the Esquire Tavern in San Antonio, this cocktail takes a minimum amount of effort to produce maximum flavor—something we can all appreciate when the heat gets oppressive. I used black raspberries, red raspberries, and blueberries, but you can use any combination you like. More

Cakespy: Grilled Pound Cake

Sweets cakespy Post a comment

Riddle me this: why should burgers and hot dogs have all the fun on your grill this summer? They shouldn't, and here's the dessert to prove it: Grilled Pound Cake. More

Grilled Pound Cake

Serious Eats cakespy Post a comment

Simply butter slices of pound cake before putting them on either an outdoor or indoor stovetop grill, and let them get a little char. The nice part about this dessert is that it uses already-baked pound cake, so you can't under-bake it. The grilled toastiness of the cake makes it the perfect canvas for any number of toppings: I really enjoy ice cream and a seasonal fruit compote. Just be sure to prepare this before grilling meats, because you don't want to impart a burger flavor to your dessert! More

Mulberries are a smaller, less tart cousin of the blackberry, and can be foraged from mulberry trees which grow in residential area of cities in the northeast. If you have access to these bountiful (and free!) berries, try them in this jam, which brings out their earthy, sweet flavor. More

Scooped: Strawberry Frozen Yogurt

Sweets Max Falkowitz 1 comment

Frozen yogurt should be creamy and rich just like any other ice cream, and it should also be tart, bright, and full of tangy yogurt flavor. This recipe, which I'm inclined to call ice cream as much as frozen yogurt, is an expression of how you can have it all. More

A frozen yogurt that earnestly tastes like real strawberries. And yes, it's totally okay to eat for breakfast. More

DIY vs. Buy: How to Make Raspberry Liqueur

Drinks Marcia Simmons 3 comments

Raspberry liqueur isn't hard to find, but the bottles you can buy are all over the map. Some options are candy sweet, while others are cough syrup-strong. Making your own liqueur gives you control over how sweet and boozy the end result is—you're likely to end up with something that better suits your sugar tolerance. More

Sweets Lauren Weisenthal Post a comment

Most states are still months away from fresh fruit coming back into season, but if you're like me, you're pining for the sweet and tart berries of summer right now. Luckily, there's a great way to enjoy the fruits of summer without the wait. The answer, my pie loving friends, is frozen fruit. More

Mixed Berry Pie (Made with Frozen Berries)

Serious Eats Lauren Weisenthal 3 comments

Frozen berries are a great alternative to fresh for winter baking. Many people fret about whether they should thaw the fruit first, but you don't need to. With the exception of a slightly longer baking time, the results are no different from baking with fresh berries, and the crust actually holds its shape well with frozen berries inside. Feel free to adjust the sugar and cornstarch to your tastes for sweetness and texture; less cornstarch will yield a runny pie, more will give the filling a more jammy texture. More

Despite the late summer arrival of heat-wilted afternoons, the chill of the evening skies and whispering hints of autumn are signs that the farmers' markets in the Northwest are coming to a close.
