Summer Dessert Season
There is nothing I love more than settling into summer. Long lazy days and balmy nights staying up late lingering over a great grilled meal with friends. The out of doors becomes another room of the house with dining al fresco for any meal of the day. To me summer is the epitome of relaxation. Everything moves more slowly and the opportunity for outdoor fun and a delicious summer dessert is endless.
In a seasonal climate such as Colorado summers brings Farmer’s Markets bursting at the seams with fresh vegetables and produce. I just can’t get enough of summer fruit in particular. A favorite seasonal outing of mine is to go berry picking, then make some delicious summer desserts with it. Strawberry pie, blueberry cobbler, and raspberry-vanilla sugar cookies are among my favorites.
Having lived in California, where berry picking is easily available, I was surprised to find it’s not as common in Colorado. I was determined to find somewhere to berry pick and after some sleuthing, did find a few local farms.
There is truly nothing better than the flavor of a freshly picked ripe strawberry. To me they are the quintessential flavor of summer. I’m excited to partner with Tate+Lyle® Sugars to create a fun summer dessert that is perfect for grilling parties, picnicking or just hanging out.
I love the sun-kissed flavor of Tate+Lyle® Sugars and knew Tate+Lyle® Organic Pure Cane Sugar would be perfect for the Strawberry Jam Panna Cotta summer desserts. It is lightly refined with a slight touch of molasses in the blonde-colored sugar crystals making it a wonderful complement to summer flavors. Tate+Lyle® Sugars are also certified organic and Fairtrade certified, providing fair prices and opportunities for smaller-scale sugarcane farmers (which I love). You can locate Tate+Lyle® Sugars near you in the sweetener aisle at Walmart and other stores.
