This is one of my favorite dessert recipes to make in the summer when berries and stone fruit are in high season. It's simple, easy to make, I can make it ahead of time and it showcases the gorgeous, fresh fruit.

  Berry 1 1⁄2 Pound (raspberries, blueberries, blackberries)
  Plum 2 Pound, pitted and cut into ½“ thick wedges
