strawberry time

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.

    Thanks for posting this. I have been curious about the Primal Strips. Several of my friends have mentioned their existence, but none of my friends have actually tried them yet.

    We’ve been looking at some of the vegan jerky too so it is nice to see a review. It’s nice to have snack options especially with summer holidays around the corner. Thanks!
