The organic strawberries and blackberries have been on sale, so we have be buying them all week. They are so good and disappear quickly.
Earlier in the week I found a vegan recipe for gelato and decided to modify it by adding pureed strawberries. It was pretty yummy. I made the original version a few weeks ago and it was a little creamier than the strawberry version. I wonder if was the strawberries or if I did something wrong. It was still very good.
Speaking of vegan treats, I was sent some Primal strips (meatless vegan jerky) recently, and was asked to give a review. Although I was never a big fan of jerky when I did eat meat, I thought it might be interesting to try them out. It turned out to be a really fun little experiment with the family. We divided each flavor into four pieces and gave them all a try. They were pretty dang tasty and the texture was chewy giving us a nice jaw workout. Our favorites were the Texas BBQ and the Teriyaki. I also liked the Thai peanut. The one with the best texture was the Hot & Spicy flavor, made from shiitaki mushrooms, but unfortunately it was a little to spicy for us. I usually don’t buy processed fake meat items, but these might make a fun snack on a big hike or camping treat.
