Summer berry recipe with caramelized walnuts

Mmmm, how much do you love farmer’s market berries? Strawberries, blackberries, raspberries and blueberries… delish! It is the perfect, light and sweet treat on a hot summer day. Summertime is known for its sunshine, but I can’t get enough of fresh summer produce! You will be amazed how tastier and sweet local berries taste verse store bought berries. Once you try em’, you’ll never want to indulge in anything else.
