San Diego LGBT Pride is this weekend, and I’m celebrating with a kaleidoscope of organic fruit purees. Each puree destined for a glass of champs of course
Making your own fruit purees at home is an easy task. Simply blend ripe, organic fruit with sugar and citrus juice, strain, and serve! That’s it. For reals. Sugar and citrus (lemon, lime or orange) help to amp up the flavors of any fresh fruit. Once you’ve mastered one puree, try making a vibrant rainbow of purees with strawberries, papaya, mango, honeydew, watermelon, blueberries and blackberries. All the organic produce featured in this article was purchased at the new Jimbo’s… Naturally! at Westfield Horton Plaza. They have a seriously gorgeous selection of fresh herbs and fruit.
You can serve this edible spectrum with champagne, sparkling wine, Prosecco or sparkling water. Place a few tablespoons of puree at the bottom of a glass, then top of with bubbly. A perfect addition to any Pride Weekend brunch table! Continue reading for the recipes.
