French yogurt and red fruit

There were so many things I loved about France, of course, the food.

I also loved how they would serve "red fruit" with yogurt, dessert or anything. Red fruit at Pigonnet meant: strawberries, raspberries and cherries. The French love cherries. And sometimes there are plums in "red fruit".
The French also make delicious homemade yogurt in little glass jars for breakfast.

So I decided to do some homemade French type breakfast treats. Pictured at the top: homemade plain yogurt with organic milk topped with "red fruits".
Red fruits: raspberries, strawberries and pitted sour cherries simmered with some sugar and lemon juice. Delicious! One night we had a light sweet custard topped with red fruit and streusel. There are many possibilities with red fruit and it really just makes itself!
