The idea of calling this delightful and delectable dessert a recipe is completely laughable.
Barnyard animals aside, I have been eating this gorgeous bowl of goodness since I was a wee lass, maybe even younger than Ave, even though I was notoriously picky as a child. This fruit filled dessert was a staple in our house growing up and remains one in mine today. I legit look forward to it every year, just as much as those first few berries of the season, eaten right from the vine or bush.
Once spring gives way to summer, the heat rises, and the local local markets are bursting with blueberries and grapes, I know it’s time.
The beauty of this dish is its sheer simplicity. You know how I feel about fast recipes, and I’m telling you it’s the easiest thing in the world to throw together, with only four ingredients, and no cooking involved. As an added bonus, you can be flexible with the measurements. The prep work consists of washing the fruit and serving it up. Seriously that is it. There’s nothing else.
The combination of blueberries, grapes, sour cream and brown sugar is understated elegance. It’s softly sweet, absolutely refreshing, and the perfect end to a hot summer day. The berries are bold, the grapes are crisp, and the brown sugar and sour cream meld together into a luscious caramel concoction you won’t be able to stop eating.
Trust me, this one is a hit. Your family will laud you, friends will sing your praises, and only you’ll know how easy it was to make, laughable even, until of course they ask for the recipe.
- Blueberries, rinsed
- Seedless Green Grapes, rinsed
- Sour Cream
- Brown Sugar
- Wash blueberries and grapes and put in a large serving bowl. In small and separate serving bowls, put a couple of spoonfuls of sour cream and brown sugar. Each person should serve themselves by topping their blueberries and grapes with a scoop of sour cream and a sprinkle of brown sugar, adjusting proportions as they see fit.
