Berry Bonanza

We tend to think of berries as a sweet beginning to mornings or a treat for the end of the day, but don’t limit yourself. When berry season is in full swing, tuck the fragrant fruit into baked goods, mash them with hot peppers for an invigorating sauce, blend them into soups and pair them with savory cheeses for an unexpected appetizer. Don’t forget to freeze a handful or two of whole berries from every batch (if you have any left!) for the ultimate smoothie addition.

Here are some of our favorite ways with summer berries.

Our fridge is stuffed full of berries during the summer, to use in recipes or just to snack on. My faves: using them as a layer in a PB&J sandwich, in pancakes, in smoothies and on top of soy ice cream. :)

So concerned with the goji berries that I eat daily - after reading so much bad news about the pesticides etc. how assured are you about the "organic" label on the ones you sell. Many thanks,

Sugar-Free and Low-sugar jams are also a VERY economic and healthy way to get your fruit fix! :)
