Kanten is a perfect summer dessert. Light and not too sweet, it is a cross between Jell-O and pudding. You can use any fruit that is in season to make this wonderful treat, and it is an ideal dessert for kids. This time of year we make Cherry Berry Kanten, gingery Peach or Nectarine Kanten, or a mint and lime scented Raspberry or Peach Kanten. Another favorite is a mixed berry kanten in a base of cherry and orange.
While the cooking part should be reserved for older kids, children of all ages can participate in choosing the fruits and helping to prepare this wonderful treat.
