Homestead Parfait

I made my own “Homestead Parfait” tonight as a special treat and wanted to share. It was scrumptious, though one of the kids would prefer not to have the nutmeg. It’s so good for you it can be a light meal any time of day, and is full of anti-oxidants. Here is how you make it.

Homestead Parfait

Homestead Parfait

  • 2-4 cups fresh berried (strawberries, blackberries, blueberries, raspberries)
  • 2 cups fresh heavy cream, preferably raw
  • 1 tablespoon raw honey
  • dash of nutmeg or cinnamon
  • milk chocolate, grated as added

First, pick your berries and check over for bugs and debris like leaves. Chill, or freeze for a few minutes to firm up.

In a large bowl, beat cream until it starts to thicken, then dribble in honey while still mixing. Whip until cream stands in medium-soft peaks.

In the bottom of a glass or parfait cup, put a dollop of whipped cream. Add a single or double layer of fresh berries, then another layer of whipped cream. Repeat the fruit and whipped cream layer if desired. To complete, sprinkle whipped topping with a dash of nutmeg or cinnamon and grate a small amount of chocolate on top. Serve right away or store in the refrigerator for 1-3 hours before serving.

Now, I played with pictures of a couple parfaits I made, and liked them so much I have to share with you. If they don’t make you try this, nothing will!
