Fresh and fruity is the theme this week at I Heart Cooking Clubs. I chose these yogurt parfaits as blackberries are in season.
To macerate the berries you add seeds of half of a vanilla bean to 1/4 cup of sugar and blend with your fingers. Add two cups of blackberries and one cinnamon stick and let sit for 35 minutes to one hour. Divide the berries between 4 glasses and top the berry mixture with 2/3 cup of plain yogurt. I did not have 10 ounce jars as the recipe calls for so I had leftover macerated berries as it would not all fit. We enjoyed these on a hot summer day.
The recipe is available on page 199 of Good Food, Good Life.
