Berry Thankful Ideas To Cozy Up To
The holiday season is approaching, a time when we look forward to cozy evenings spent with loved ones cooking, entertaining, and giving thanks. Warming comfort foods, elegant appetizers, and hearty main courses can be enhanced by a flourish of fresh berries for sweet and savory dishes. Although, berries are often seen as a summer fruit we grow them year-round! That means you can put them in your favorite family recipes, or try some new ones that will become part of the holiday tradition!
Holidays often mean hosting parties with friends and family. For an elegant starter that is sure to wow the crowd, try our Well•Pict Berry Crostini. The strawberries and raspberries add a tangy, sweet freshness that tastes heavenly with the crispy ciabatta and creamy goat cheese.
As we all know, holidays mean food, and lots of it! If you need something filling, but still super healthy, we’ve got you covered! Our berries are a sweet addition to this Strawberry Quinoa Salad from Domestic Fits. And, it can be made in large quantities which is perfect for entertaining!
Our berries are fantastic in sweets and desserts, but you can also use them in savory ones! Amy at the blog Wholesomelicious, cleverly pairs strawberries with balsamic vinegar and basil in this 20-minute Strawberry Basil Chicken dish. You can try this quick, tasty meal during the winter months, and it is Paleo, Whole30, gluten-free, and kid-friendly which makes it a wonderfully inclusive dish for everyone during the holidays.
One good thing about the changing of the seasons is being able to use a slow cooker. Berry cobbler is an ideal way to put the slow cooker to use, and our berries are picked at the peak of freshness which will give you maximum flavor with minimal work. Ashley from The Recipe Rebel uses a slow cooker for her Berry Cobbler (along with lots of cinnamon!) to create a warm, cozy dessert that is perfect for cool weather and sharing with friends.
Lastly, it wouldn’t be fall without hot chocolate. The blog Adventures of a Nurse blends white chocolate with sweet, ripe strawberries for a fresh twist on an old classic. This Strawberry Hot Chocolate is the perfect drink to keep you and your loved ones warm this season!
From our family to yours, we hope you have a berry thankful holiday season.
