Summers are great in Britain because of the abundance of fresh seasonal fruits. To be exact, it is the seasons for berries. It is a good time to add it on the church potluck menu along with other seasonal bounties. This August, blueberry and strawberry are but few that are handy and cherry is a great addition since it is not long before the season closes on it. Below is a quick recipe for a simple fruit bowl.

[PREPARATION TIME: 20 minutes]                                                        [COVER: 20-25]



  • 200 g strawberries
  • 200 g cherries
  • 75 g blueberries
  • 5 satsumas/clementines/mandarins
  • 150 g white grapes
  • 150 g red grapes


  1. Peel satsumas and place in a rectangular glass dish, using the segments to make five sections.
