This is a simple and sophisticated merger of flavors that is indeed more than the sum of its parts. Serve it in chilled martini glasses with a lemon twist, and you'll get oohs and ahhs at the table.
- 3 pints raspberries
- 1/2 cup sugar-free maple-flavored syrup
- 1 lemon
Place the raspberries in a bowl.
In a small bowl, place the syrup. Grate the zest of the lemon and set aside.
Halve the lemon and squeeze to get 3 tablespoons juice. Mix the juice into
the syrup and stir until combined. Pour the lemon-syrup sauce over the
raspberries and let marinate for 15 minutes.
Distribute the raspberries among 4 chilled martini or wine glasses. Top with
the sauce from the bowl. Scatter the lemon zest on top and serve
immediately. You may also garnish each serving with a long twist of lemon
zest or a paper-thin lemon slice cut from an additional lemon.
Nutritionist's Note: Blueberries lead the list of antioxidant-fortified
fruits, but strawberries and raspberries are close to the top.
