Raspberries in Red Wine

I'm very busy with work at the moment, and as I run my own business that means that there's little time for baking. Boo. But while I might not be able to bake this week, I can still make something scrumptious out of the basic ingredients in the fridge. Raspberries in wine is a lovely quick little recipe which would work well with any autumn berry, and it's brilliant served with whipped cream, over plain yoghurt or vanilla icecream, or simply eaten on it's own.

Serves 4 moderate eaters or 2 greedyguts

2 large handfuls of raspberries, washed
240ml red wine
65g sugar, or more to taste
half a teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice

1. In a large bowl mix the wine, sugar and lemon juice together.

2. Add the raspberries and stir in gently, before covering the bowl with a plate and leaving it to stand at room temperature for 1 hour.

3. Finally chill the bowl in the fridge for 20 minutes, before serving with whipped cream, icecream or yoghurt.

This was idly made while listening to Radiohead's album King of Limbs
