8 cups of washed and cut up fruit such as:

  • grapes
  • clementines
  • raspberries
  • strawberries
  • blueberries
  • blackberries
  • pineapple
  • apple
  • melon
  • sprigs of mint for garnish


  • In a small saucepan, bring water, sugar, and lemon peel to a light simmer until sugar has melted into the water completely.
  • Remove from heat and stir in vanilla.
  • Pour into a separate container and refrigerate to cool.
  • Cut up and prepare the fruit.
  • After 30 minutes, the syrup should be cool enough to work with. Drizzle over individual bowls of fruit and serve immediately OR pour syrup over a large bowl of fruit, stir to coat, cover and refrigerate until you're ready to serve.
  • Top with springs of mint leaves.
