    BecR's Note:

    This syrup works with any combination of fruit; I especially like it with the tropicals. It is a light and refreshing dessert; the use of the vanilla bean makes these fruits seem exotic. Cook time includes chill time. From author and herbalist Susan Belsinger.

      I was actually looking for a dressing recipe for my fruit salad and this one was perfect. I didn't have a vanilla bean so just used about a half tsp of regular vanilla. I used melons, grapes, cherries and plums for my fruit and this syrup was just what I wanted. I will be using this one again for sure!
