Freshly-picked berries and mint on crème brulee
Some berry pickings on my second most favorite dessert - CREME BRULEE. This elegant French dessert is surprisingly easy to make. The ingredients: 3 cups of heavy cream, five eggs, half cup sugar and a teaspoon vanilla extract. Forty minutes on a 300°F pre-heated oven, then on to the fridge for at least a couple of hours. A sprinkle of turbinado sugar caramelized with a kitchen blowtorch, then topped with mint and berries from the garden - blueberries, raspberries and boysenberries.
