Quite the most delicious summer fruit recipe, made in minutes.
Put all the fruit into a white china or glass bowl. Put the sugar, cold water and sweet geranium leaves into a saucepan and bring slowly to the boil, stirring until the sugar dissolves. Boil for 2 minutes. Pour the boiling syrup over the fruit and allow to macerate for several hours. Remove geranium leaves. Serve chilled, accompanied by shortbread biscuits, softly whipped cream or Ballymaloe Vanilla Ice Cream. Garnish with a few fresh sweet geranium leaves.
