Strawberries are an easy flavor to work with. To get you started, here are some fun and easy treats that are great for summer!

Homemade Strawberry Popsicles

This recipe is a great healthy alternative for your little ones! In a medium bowl, mix halved strawberries and about 3 tablespoons of sugar. Let the mixture sit for about 10 minutes so the strawberry juice can absorb into the sugar. In a blender or food processor, combine the strawberries and sugar with optional flavors (such as lime juice, mint, or even sliced bananas) and blend thoroughly. Pour the mixture into popsicle sleeves, freeze, and then enjoy!

Strawberry Muffins

Who doesn’t love muffins? Especially when you mix in quarter-sliced strawberries. If your strawberries are getting close to the end of their ripeness, baking them into a muffin will save them from going bad. Plus there will be plenty of leftovers for a quick breakfast or afternoon snack.

Mexican Strawberry Water

So easy! In a medium bowl, add cold water, ice, halved strawberries, and sugar to taste (about 1 cup). Mix together, pour into a pitcher, and then serve! You can take these to go at the park, or enjoy them on the deck.

Popcorn is a must-have for family movie night! When it’s time to gather the family around, shake up your favorite snack with some flavored popcorn balls.

Note: If you opt for individual popcorn pieces rather than balls, simply remove the honey 😉

Line a baking pan with Hard Bargain Organic Yellow Popcorn.

Over medium heat, melt the butter and honey together. This will create the “glue” that your popcorn ball will need to hold it together. After the mixture has reached a boiling point, stir in your favorite spices and seasonings.

IDEAS:

  • Vanilla Extract & Brown Sugar
  • Peanut Butter
  • Yogurt-Granola
  • Strawberries

Pour the mixture thoroughly over the popcorn and place in the oven. Bake for 25 minutes. In 5 minute intervals, briefly stir the contents.

Let the mixture sit until it’s cool enough to form into balls, and then let stand until solid. For even more fun, get a few batches going for variety.

This week, Farm 2 Counter is featuring 2lbs of organic popcorn in our Delivery Boxes! We also carry this organic popcorn in our store, so come visit us at 2006 N Broadway Ave, Springfield, MO 65803.
