We absolutely adore this time of year at our house. Sure, the weather is fantastic. Sure, summer vacation is a relaxing break. Sure, the longer hours of daylight are a welcome and refreshing change of pace. But none of those things compare to the awesomeness that is widely available fresh berries!
I think we could all be classified as berry junkies. It’s not uncommon for a pound of blueberries or strawberries to be finished off within 5 minutes. I’ve even had to resort to rationing berries because as much as they’d like to convince me otherwise, I know my kiddos can’t exist on berries alone.
Our berry consumption usually goes something like this – container to colander to mouth. End of story. However, every once in a while, I’ll snag a few cups of berries to use in my cooking.
Though I don’t get to do it very often, here are my favorite, tried and true berry recipes that I make over and over again. I hope they’ll help you make the most out of this plentiful berry season…if you can!
