A light, refreshing summer dessert. Great with whipped cream or without.

This is an excellent for a low fat, low sugar diet with a melody of taste sensations.

I Think This Is A Great Dish!!!! YUMMY YUMMY IN YOU'RE TUM TUM

The fennel was so subtle that it had more visual and textural impact than flavor. Still, a nice, simple, elegant way to serve fresh fruit.

A definite hit. A wonderful lite end to any meal. I don't like raisins, so was leery of the red currants. They were fantastic in this dessert.

Really good, but I used raspberries, sweet cherries & blueberries. Instead of fennel, I used basil from my garden in one batch & mint & lavendar in another. Delicious! Even better if you cook...

Fabulous! This made for a simple yet elegant dessert and a perfect ending to a nice meal. It had a very wonderul combination of colors and flavors and was light and refreshing without being too...

This was really good and very easy. I couldn't find Fresh Currants so I bought dried, and then reconstituted them in 1 cup of dry sherry by simmering covered for 15 minutes. I substituted mint...

This is very good, although not particularly special. Try it again when red currants are available.
