You'll find mixed berries in the freezer compartment of most supermarkets. There's no need to defrost the fruit before cooking. It's simple, quick and easy. If you've not got all the spices mentioned, just use what you have. It works well with cinnamon alone. Serve with cream or ice cream and your selection of sprinkles.
