Here’s an easy and healthy fruit-filled recipe to decorate your tables for the holiday:

  • 2 cups of Strawberries (now the 3# fresh fruit in the nation, and trading is very active out of the Salinas-Watsonville and Santa Maria, CA districts)
  • 2 Cups of Blueberries (trading is active out of NJ and Eastern NC, winding down in GA and CA, and harvest is just beginning in OR & WA)
  • 2 cups of Blackberries (trading is active out of Salinas-Watsonville, CA and GA/NC Districts, and just picking up in Santa Maria, CA)
  • ¼ cup of sugar
  • 1 cups of heavy whipping cream

Slice the strawberries and combine them in a large bowl with the blueberries and blackberries Sprinkle the berries with a tablespoon of the sugar. Whip the cream (sweeten to taste with remaining sugar). Serve in small cups to add some red, white and blue to your table!

Happy Birthday USA!!!
