This super simple recipe highlights the fresh berries available now. We used raspberries and blackberries from the Proctor market, but you can use any combination of your favorite berries. Although finding crème fraîche where I live is basically impossible, it’s easy to make at home. Even easier is sweetening Greek yogurt with honey or agave but I’ve included here the directions for making crème fraîche.

· ½ cup crème fraîche, directions below
· 1-2 Tablespoons local honey (I like raw honey, but if you have young kids who might try this, pasteurized honey is recommended. It can still be local!)
· ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
Mix crème fraîche, honey and vanilla in a bowl. Add more honey or vanilla, to taste.
Place berries in a bowl, top with crème fraîche mixture and garnish with graham crackers (I crushed some on top). Drizzle with balsamic reduction, just for fun. Enjoy!
Mix together in a non-reactive (glass or stainless steel) container. Cover with a clean cloth and let sit at room temperature (about 70 degrees Fahrenheit) until it reaches desired consistency, 8-24 hours. Refrigerate up to two weeks.
