They’re Berry Berry Good
The little kids and I took a trip to the Boise Farmers Market last week. It’s summer so of course berries are in season. And there is nothing better than buying fresh berries at your local farmers market. We purchased boysenberries in particular because in the store we normally get blueberries, blackberries and strawberries. I wasn’t sure the two younger ones have ever tried boysenberries. They are good for digestive health, brain health, and bone strength too. Perfect! What kid doesn’t need a little extra superfoods? And since my kids will look like they took a bath in berries when they eat them because they can’t shove them in their mouth fast enough before juice is dripping all over I decided against the stains on the way home and looked up recipes instead.
Sunday Morning Breakfast
In our house Dada is off on Sundays. The kids always look forward to Sunday morning breakfast. Sometimes we will get donuts, make a good breakfast or go out to eat. I personally love waffles, so when I searched for boysenberry recipes and found this one. My mouth was drooling right away. It was torture for all of us to have the berries sitting there until Sunday morning. They wanted to eat them and I couldn’t wait for waffles. I was a little bit nervous to actually make this recipe. I have always wanted to try canning food or making jams and jellies and the directions on recipes talk me right out of it. But the simplicity of this recipe seemed like a sauce novice like me could do it. I actually only had 2 smaller baskets of boysenberries so I cut the recipe in half. It only took a few minutes to make and in no time we were eating the most delicious breakfast.
