Driscoll's Berry Giveaway - TODAY ONLY!!!

In Honor of National Berry Month, our friends at Driscoll's Berries have not only kindly provided this wonderful recipe, but they also have some coupons for free berries for two readers each Tuesday during the month of July (scroll down for giveaway info).





Berries and Zabaglione



Prep time: 15 minutes
Makes 4 servings


2 packages (6 ounces each) Driscoll’s Raspberries, Blackberries or Blueberries or 3 cups sliced hulled Strawberries
4 large egg yolks
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup dry Marsala wine


Divide berries between four 8-ounce dessert dishes or stemmed glasses.
Fill the bottom of a double boiler (or a saucepan with a metal bowl fitted snuggly on top) with 1-2 inches of water or just below bowl. Bring water to a simmer.
Beat egg yolks and sugar in top of double boiler or bowl with an electric mixer or wire whisk until fluffy and light in color, about 5 minutes. Maintain water at a low simmer while beating.
Add Marsala 1 tablespoon at a time, continuously beating until mixture forms very soft peaks, about 8 minutes.
Pour Zabaglione over berries and serve immediately.
