Strawberry Picking

U-pick season is in full swing here in Florida...

This was Darwin's first time in the field. We learned how to pick only when ripe ("pick the red ones, not the green ones,") how to spot strawberry-loving insects, and how to wait until our berries are weighed to eat them (well, mostly.)

We picked too many berries (it's so hard to stop!) so once home, I pureed and dehydrated some into fruit snacks. This is by far the cleanest way to serve strawberries to a toddler:

crispy tropical strawberry snacks (strawberries, bananas, unsweetened shredded coconut)

strawberry fruit leather
