Berries are some of the joyful highlights of summer.
They are so very delicious picked warm off the plant and fantastically good for you.
Wonderful on their own, nevertheless there are a few ingredients like thyme and black pepper that elevate them even further up the culinary scale.

– Blueberry Thyme. Sur del Lago 70 dark chocolate with blueberries and thyme. This is a wonderful combination, the thyme bringing a delicate fragrance to the blueberries giving them a little lift. The light Sur del Lago bean simply provides their stage.
– Strawberry & Black Pepper. Strawberries and cream chocolate with black pepper. A not so hidden secret about eating all kinds of berries is that a couple of grinds of black pepper brings out their sweetness by adding the mildest touch of spice. This is the taste of summer.
