A little bit of effort, but amply rewarded. This was adapted by Jonathan Reynolds of the New York Times from "The Berry Bible." He prefers gin and so do I, but it's also awfully good with vodka. You'll have leftover simple syrup and berry puree, but I promise you, it won't go to waste. Cooking time is the estimate of how long it takes the syrup to cool.
I got this from the Sunday paper coupon inserts. This is the perfect dessert for a warm evening when you just want something light. The hardest part was cutting the angel food cake! This is super easy to prepare but looks and tastes great! I hope you enjoy! Note: Cooking time is refrigeration time.
What's the watermelon doing in this recipe? That's what I asked myself too, but it's an awfully good combination! I've made this several times, and it's based off of a recipe I cut out of the NY Times a while ago. Really nice for a spring or summer side dish.
