  • 1 vanilla bean, (optional)

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Combine fruit and syrup in a small bowl. If using berries, press them with the back of a spoon until they just start to break apart. For a smoother syrup, press through a sieve.

    Split vanilla bean, if using, and scrape seeds into mixture. Add bean to bowl.
