Makes about 2 cups
- 2 cups berries (such as raspberries, blackberries, or hulled, sliced strawberries—even defrosted individually quick-frozen berries will work here)
- ½ teaspoon lime or lemon zest
- 1 to 2 tablespoons sugar to taste
- In a small bowl, mix the berries with lime or lemon zest and sugar. Mash the mixture slightly to crush some of the berries. Let the mixture stand a few minutes to meld the flavors.
- Serve over grilled pound cake or vanilla ice cream.
