Back in September, I had the chance to visit our local Farmer’s Market to learn about the foods that they sell. While you can read more here, I will tell you that I loved that the foods came from field to my table. No middle man. It feels good to know that I am putting money directly into the pockets of the people who help me feed my family.
While I was there, I purchased fresh peaches and raspberries. I brought them home and sealed them using my new FoodSaver Vacuum Sealer!
A week or so ago, I reached into my freezer and pulled out my fruit and it looked as fresh as the day we froze it!
I opened the raspberries and peaches. I then found a few apples in our refrigerator and let my daughter go to work doing her chopping (she loves using the chopper). We stirred all of the fruit together, added in a bit of jelly and had our favorite snack – Fruit Salsa!! I make this all summer long with fresh produce and could not tell that my fruits had been frozen at all. Our FoodSaver system truly kept them as fresh as the day we bought them. That means it is money in my pocket as I didn’t have to throw away any food!
Now, here’s the recipe for you to try yourself!!
3 – 4 peeled chopped apples
1 quart chopped raspberries
5 – 6 chopped peaches
1 – 2 Tbs grape jelly
Mix together in the order given. Allow the jelly to dissolve a bit and then serve with cinnamon pita chips. It’s that simple!
