Berry Blog

We love berries. We eat them every day. Sometimes we cook them, sometimes we eat them straight out of the packet. This blog is our way of sharing and showing off some of the ways we use our berries. We've prepared the recipes in our test kitchen - which doubles as our staff kitchen. We hope you enjoy these recipes and ideas as much as we do.

Berries with Limoncello

Written by Trisha on November 14th, 2012.      0 comments

I recently came across this recipe by the gorgeous Giada De Laurentiis of Everyday Italian, on the Food Network.  It seemed too good to be true!  I've adapted it to use with Orchard Gold mixed berries.

I've made it several times now with Orchard Gold Mixed Berries, sometimes adding a few fresh diced strawberries to the mix.  Serve in pretty glasses, take a big bowl along to a BBQ or have with cake.  We reckon it'll go well with pavlova at Christmas too.


Mixed Berries with Limoncello - using Orchard Gold frozen berries - a premium mix of boysenberries, blackberries, raspberries and blueberries.

Berries with Limoncello 2


1 pack Orchard Gold Mixed Berries

½ punnet fresh strawberries (optional)

2 tablespoons Limoncello

2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh mint leaves

2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh basil leaves


Thaw the Orchard Gold Mixed Berries in a bowl.  Remove the calyx from the strawberries and dice roughly the same size as the raspberries.  
Add the Limoncello, mint and basil and stir until combined.  The flavours will mature if you leave for an hour before eating.

You could make up a separate bowl of berries for the younger ones, omitting the limoncello and replacing it with a little icing sugar.
