Sharing Is Berry-licious

So today's post will be berry short and sweet ...
to plant a berry delicious idea.
On Sunday, we had a family outing to the strawberry patch down the road, where we picked two buckets of berries.
Straight from the field ... yummy!


And we came straight home to make pie.
But since Joshua's not a pie fan (what? what?) and there's
way too much deliciousness for just John and me,
we decided to share a slice with my house-bound neighbor.
Still too much pie, so we shared another slice 
with my piano lessons teacher.

And while they both enjoyed their sweet treat a lot,
I'm pretty sure we enjoyed sharing it even more.
Just a little time and talent, coupled with some
farm-fresh produce, added up to happiness all around.
Delicious happiness.
Ala mode, with a berry on top!

  2. Bake a pie crust ... cool. Mix 1 cup water, 1 cup sugar, 3 T. corn starch, 2 T. white Karo syrup and a dash of salt. Boil until thick and clear. Stir in 3 T. strawberry jello granules and cool. While cooling the gel and the pie crust, cut 25-30 berries, depending on size into halves. Pour into gel and fill pie shell. Refrigerate at least an hour. Top with whipped cream and enJOY!
