Fun Fruit Recipes for Kids: Sherry Berries

Sherry Berries


  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1 cup sugar
  • dash of salt
  • 2 tbsp. dry sherry


  • Put the above ingredients in a double boiler.
  • Bring to a boil and cook for 10 minutes, stirring constantly.
  • Refrigerate until cool, and stir in a little more sherry to soften.
  • Whip 1 cup whipping cream and fold into the sherry mixture. Spoon over individual servings of berries.
  • This is great over blue berries, strawberries, dewberries, blackberries, raspberries....or a mixture!

You may note in the ingredient picture that the blueberries are in an odd shaped container. This is our homemade picking bucket. This specific one was made from a large vinegar container. We have also used gallon water jugs. The main idea is to use the handle as a "loop" for a belt to go through and have a large enough opening to not miss as you drop the berries in the container. This frees both hands to pick and allows the chore to be done quicker!

    Optional Homemade whipped cream sustitute:

    • Combine 1/3 cup ice water, 1 1/4 tsp. lemon juice, 1/2 tsp vanilla then add 1/3 cup nonfat dry milk powder. Beat until stiff peaks form and add 2 tbsp. of sugar. Beat another 2 minutes. I put this in the freezer while the sherry mixture is in the refrigerator.

    For a refreshing treat try putting a spoonful of this recipe over FROZEN berries, wait about 5 minutes so the berries slightly defrost and the mixture drips down over the berries- DELICIOUS!!
