In France, my mother-in-law cooks fruit such as apricots and plums when she has an abundance or when the fruit is overly ripe. When the fruit cooks, the juices are released, and the result is a sweet soup. I took this idea and used a combination of berries and fresh orange juice. It has become a favorite among children and is impressive enough for entertainingand it is so simple to make.

1 Quart Strawberries

1 Pint Raspberries

1 Pint Blueberries

1 Orange


1. Combine the strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries in a saucepan. 


2. Add the juice and the zest of one orange.


3. Cook over medium-low heat for about 5-8 minutes. You want to cook the fruit long enough for the juices to release but not so long that the fruit is very mushy.


4. Let cool slightly. Serve warm or cold. It can be made ahead and stored in the fridge for several days. I find this recipe is better when it has had time to rest. This gives the flavors time to marinate together, and the juice thickens slightly, giving the soup a creamy texture.


This is an easy dish to throw together in the evening, and it will be ready for dinner the following day. 

Serve as is or with a small dollop of ice cream or homemade whipped cream.

I often cook "au pif," as we say in France, which means cooking without an exact recipe and by "feel" using your intuition.  You’ll often find guidelines in many recipes versus exact quantities.  Write to me here if you have any questions about the recipes.

  • A Real Game Changer

    "We have made a lot of progress over here under your care. We are now all eating from the same “pot” which I was surprised how much my kids loved. They were so excited when I put the food in the middle of the table. They asked for it the next day, Can we do that special fancy dinner thing where we have a feast? It really is such a better ritual—passing the food around and all sharing from the same platter, a real game changer."
