Recipe for Spiced Wild Berries. This gourmet dessert by Chef Jesse Perez of Francesca's at Sunset will amaze you at just how easy it is to prepare.


  • 1/2 cup dried strawberries
  • 1/2 cup dried figs
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup dried cherries
  • 1/2 cup dried currants
  • 1/2 cup dried blueberries
  • 1 1/2 quarts port wine (a cheap one!)
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 tablespoon canela (cinnamon) stick, ground
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground toasted allspice


  1. Place all ingredients in a large saucepot and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer and continue cooking until berries are soft and a syrup has formed. Add more port if the berries rise to the top and look dry. Place in an ice bath and let cool completely before handling.
  2. Serve with Cajeta Anglaise (click this link for recipe).
