    Kozmic Blues's Note:

    The tiny specs of fresh vanilla bean in the syrup really add great flavor to all this wonderful fruit. Please feel free to substitute different fresh fruit that might be in season for any of the fruit I have listed here!

      This was such a hit at our brunch today (Easter). I am so glad I splurged for the Vanilla Bean. Here are the fruits I did: Bottom/Layer 1: Strawberries Layer 2: Mangoes 3: Blackberries 4: Kiwi Fruits 5: Blueberries with more Strawberries in center. Top Layer- Ring of Strawberries with Blackberries in center (Garnish). I also used 3/4 Cup of sugar and 3/4 Cup of water to increase the syrup. Half a Vanilla Bean because the one I bought was SO large. The grapefruit was so nice in the syrup. Everyone just raved about the presentation and the taste. This is a keeper. I will upload my picture, footed truffle bowl.

      The flavour was fine but not spectacular. I made this with fresh peeled and sliced, in season peaches and sliced banana. I tried this twice in half the amount and both times the syrup got too thick so be careful with that! I added halal vanilla bean paste (vanilla bean flecks in it, no alcohol, from the health food store) after simmering. The syrup did improve in flavour overnight refrigerated. I did not use the grapefruit juice as I didn't think it is required but that probably would have improved the flavour for me.

      Absolutely Fabulous!!!! I really loved the syrup!!! Adding the grapefruit juice to it gave it a really wonderful depth of flavor and the vanilla bean is just to die for on fruit!!! I picked fruits that were fresh at my store and that I thought would go well with vanilla. I used pears, blackberries, kiwi, strawberries, and mango. Served with a scoop of vanilla frozen yogurt and it was a hit, thanks!!!!
