Macerated Berries on Toast

You know how sometimes you want something rich and decadent but without all the fuss? Well, this is it.

It makes for a perfect light sweet snack or a sweet breakfast option with your coffee. And of course, it‘s kid friendly.

Next time you make a brunch spread, have this as an option. You won’t regret it.

Serves 2 (as a snack)

• 100 grams Sirimon Sibiola

• ½ cup raspberries

• ½ cup blueberries

• 1 cup strawberries, hulled and quartered

• 2 tbs castor sugar

• ½ cup balsamic vinegar

• 2 slices sour dough bread

• Fresh mint to garnish

First combine all your berries, castor sugar and balsamic vinegar into a bowl and mix well. Set aside to marinate for about 15 minutes as you prepare the bread.

Take your two slices of sourdough bread and toast in a toaster until golden brown. If you don’t have a toaster, lightly butter either side of the bread and then toast in a hot frying pan until golden brown.

Allow the toast to cool.

Once cool, spread a thick layer of the sibiola on to the bread and top with a generous helping of the berries and garnish with a sprig of fresh mint.
