Remember yesterday’s crock pot berry cobbler recipe? I made that with some dried berries from Peak Season Foods! They sent me a huge goodie box last week and I’ve been enjoying trying out the products.
The first thing I tried was a recipe they included in the box for some Pick Me Up Bars. They sounded delicious and all the ingredients were so healthy. Unfortunately for me, all I had in my pantry was a course bread flour and they turned out kind of weird. The flavor was really good, but the texture? Not so much. I was really disappointed, but what can I say? Try again!
Next I decided to try some of the blackberry powder. This stuff is genius. Blackberries have big hard seeds that are no fun, especially in smoothies. I always avoid berry mixes that have blackberries for this reason. But, the powder is very finely ground up dried berries so there were no rock-hard seeds! I made a smoothie (recipe below) and used a couple teaspoons of the powder and boy was it good! I think it would also be fabulous for making blackberry sauce or small amounts of jam for cookies!
Then there was the cobbler. I ate way too much of that stuff.
