Honey Lime Fresh Fruit Cocktail



Our latest recipe is a super easy and great-tasting fruit side for breakfast, and you can modify the fruit depending on what's in season. For example, the photo above is our mid-summer version with strawberries, blueberries, peaches, cantaloupe and green grapes. We tend to use 4-5 different fruits in our cocktail for variety and color.You can also vary the kind of honey. We tend toward our local sweet stuff -- sourwood honey -- but wildflower honey and orange honey and just plain honey honey work great.
