Mama Steph's summer berries with special vanilla cream
2 pounds total of red and blue colored berries: strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, black berries.
1 cup sugar, divided
1/3 cup orange juice
For the special vanilla cream:
1 tsp vanilla extract (to taste)
1 cup cold heavy whipping cream
1/3 cup sour cream
1. In a large mixing bowl, smash about 1 cup of the strawberries (I slice the larger ones) to begin releasing the juices. Then add 1/2 to 3/4 cups sugar and the orange juice. Stir gently to combine and coat all the berries. Cover bowl, and set aside for an hour and a half to two hours at room temperature.
2. In a large mixing bowl, combine whipping cream, sour cream, vanilla extract and 1/4 cup sugar. Using the whisk attachment on your mixer, beat the mixture on high speed until it is the consistency of whipped cream. Cover and chill until ready to serve.
