The Berry Easiest Dessert Ever

Just two ingredients and about two seconds are needed to produce a berry dessert that truly melts in the mouth with divine goodness.

Start with a bowl of raspberries and a container of honey fitted with a pump. I bought my pump at Savannah Bee Company after tasting this dynamic duo. A honey pump permits you to strategically position a drop or stream of honey without any mess. 

First, pick up a raspberry in your fingers and turn it upside down. Pump two drops of honey into the berry small hole on the bottom of the raspberry and now pop it in your mouth.  That's it.

I suspect your reaction will be a cartoon character like:  WOW! ZOW! POW! 

Shazam! I could eat the whole bowlful.
