It’s harvest time in Texas! We love watching our farmer members harvest the benefits of a season of hard work. We visited some amazing farmers this summer and brought back some fantastic treats.
This week, I get to work with some of the bounty. Pretty peaches and beautiful blackberries to be exact.
And what better way to cool off in the Texas heat than a sweet frozen treat.
I don’t think there’s a single Texas fruit that wouldn’t work for this. So get creative. You could even mix a few together to make a medley. Maybe strawberries, blueberries and blackberries?
First, combine the water and sugar in a sauce pan over high heat. Dissolve the the sugar in the water, creating a simple syrup. Once the syrup comes together, remove from heat to cool. Do not touch or test, because melted sugar is extremely hot and can burn you.
This recipe is quick, easy and extremely refreshing on these hot Texas days. So put your thinking cap on and come up with your own fruit creation. I bet it will be amazing. If you want fresh peaches and blackberries, you will need to hurry, though. Harvest is almost complete. From all of us at Texas Table Top, enjoy!
