Disclosure: I was asked to participate in the #Pyrex100 campaign, sponsored by Pyrex®, a World Kitchen brand. Although I have been compensated, all opinions are my own.
Each year I like to take the kids to pick fresh fruit, sometimes apples, but often blueberries or strawberries. Next year my aim is to have them pick seasonal produce throughout the year. I think it's important for them to know where their food comes from and how we can include it in delicious dishes.
This year we tried a new strawberry farm Kenny's Strawberry Farms and it was fantastic, one of the best I've been to. The strawberries were big and juicy and the rows hadn't been completely picked over like they normally are at other places we've been.
When we got home the kids washed and ate some of the strawberries we picked while I made a yummy strawberry cheesecake tart with a few of them.
The tart was amazing, and I'm going to share the recipe in a minute, but first I want to share a few photographs of the kids picking strawberries, because I'm sure that's what you came here to see, right! We went the day before Easter and I hadn't known beforehand but they'd had a special Easter event earlier in the morning, so I'm glad we went a little later once there were no crowds and we had most of the strawberry field to ourselves.
