How to Make It

  1. Combine water and sugar in small saucepan. Scrape seeds from vanilla bean; stir seeds into sugar-water. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer 11 minutes or until reduced to 1/2 cup, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat; cool completely.

  2. While syrup cools, combine fruit in a medium bowl. Pour cooled syrup over fruit, tossing gently to coat fruit.
