Fresh Berry Medley

My sister-in-law, Naydia, makes this refreshing berry medley. It's not too sweet and has a hint of citrus and mint. I needed a fruit salad to go with my angel food cake for a Mother's Day cookout, so I asked for her recipe.

 Tasty indeed.

Fresh Berry Medley

1 cup sparkling wine or white grape juice
1/2 cup sugar
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
1 1/2 tsp. grated lemon peel
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/8 tsp. salt
8 cups fresh berries
1 Tbsp fresh mint, minced

Combine first six ingredients in a saucepan. Heat to boiling.
Chill and pour over fruit 1-2 hours before serving.
Stir in mint.

I also want to recognize my mother, Sandra. A virtuous woman indeed. She has helped me so much with Caroline the last month. There is nothing like having your mom come to help you with a new baby.

Love you Mom!

Yesterday was a special day for me. My first Mother's Day as a mother. What a precious gift God has given us... and also sobering to think He has entrusted us with Caroline to raise her to love Him.
