Yogurt Parfaits with Blackberries and Vanilla

Fresh and fruity is the theme this week at I Heart Cooking Clubs. I chose these yogurt parfaits as blackberries are in season. 
To macerate the berries you add seeds of half of a vanilla bean to 1/4 cup of sugar and blend with your fingers. Add two cups of blackberries and one cinnamon stick and let sit for 35 minutes to one hour. Divide the berries between 4 glasses and top the berry mixture with 2/3 cup of plain yogurt. I did not have 10 ounce jars as the recipe calls for so I had leftover macerated berries as it would not all fit. We enjoyed these on a hot summer day.
The recipe is available on page 199 of Good Food, Good Life.

    OOOOh, that makes me want to go pick blackberries again. Unfortunately, I'll have to wait for fall. Luckily we have frozen available.
