It’s that time again…spring time…which means berry season. Strawberries, blackberries, raspberries, blueberries, and more are at their highest peak in flavor and nutrients from spring- early summer. If you are trying to eat seasonally, then you don’t want to miss this season of plump, juicy, healthy, delicious berries. Our tables should be filled with seasonal goodness for a healthier, more nutrient rich lifestyle. Berries are delicious in lots of ways; simply on their own, with yogurt and honey or for a special treat-in yummy baked goods. Today, I’ve shared a classic blackberry cobbler recipe that our students make in cooking class. It’s an easy, hands-on recipe you and your kiddos can make together this weekend. For even more family fun, load up the kids and go berry picking. Then come home and make this for a weekend picnic, a Sunday family meal, or just a good ol’ afterschool treat.
If your child loves to cook or is the complete opposite and tends to be a picky eater, our afterschool classes and summer camps are a great opportunity to support and help both types of kids. We help kids understand food literacy through hands on cooking classes focused on technique, seasonal eating, food origins, nutrition, safety and academic enrichment. Click here for our summer camp location information and join us as we have fun with this year’s theme, “Cooking in the USA!”. Parents will enjoy a meal “made in the USA” by campers on the last day.
