Let the summer begin! Soon we will be pool side, beach side and ready to relax in the warm weather with all sorts of delicious recipes in the works.
Strawberries, raspberries, blueberries and peaches are so delicious right now.  Visit a local farmer and taste freshness at its finest.
The recipe shown below is a camper favorite. In fact, we made it just today and the kids LOVED it. Make it for yourself and see.

Fruity American Flag

Prep Time: 10 minutes Cooking Time: No time at all Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • 2 cups watermelon, diced
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1 cup feta cheese, diced

Equipment: Knife, cutting board

Here’s how: With blueberries still seasonal, and watermelon in abundance — all you need in addition is a good-quality feta cheese to create this dish. Get the kids involved, add toothpicks, and enjoy!

Step 1: Slice in half 1 fresh watermelon

Step 2: Cut into thinner slices, then remove fruit and dice

Step 3: Place watermelon in three rows on large plate or baking sheet (leave room for feta cheese)

Step 4: In between rows of watermelon, add in 2 rows of feta cheese

Step 5: In corner, place a small bowl and fill with blueberries

Did you know: Blueberries are actually one of America’s few indigenous foods, grown here for the last 13,000 years — quite fitting to serve on Independence Day!

Homemade Ice Cream

Prep Time: about 30 minutes Cooking Time: about 30 minutes Prep Time: 1 hour
  • 2 vanilla beans, split lengthwise and scraped
  • 2 cups milk, chilled
  • 6 large egg yolks
  • 3/4 cup sugar, plus 2 T
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 t pure vanilla extract
  • Equipment: knives, measuring spoons, cups, bowl, saucepan, electric mixer
  • Step 1 In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine vanilla beans and scrapings with the milk. Bring to a gentle boil. Remover from heat and let steep, covered, for 30 minutes
  • Step 2 Prepare an ice bath; set aside. In a bowl of an electric mixer, fitted with the whisk attachment, beat egg yolks and sugar on medium high speed until thick and pale, about 4 minutes.
  • Step 3 Place milk mixture over medium-high heat; bring to just a simmer. Slowly pour about 1/4 cup hot milk mixture into egg yolk mixture, beating on low speed until blended. Continue adding milk, about 1/2 cup at a time, beating until incorporated after each addition.
  • Step 4 Return mixture to saucepan; stir with wooden spoon over low heat until mixture is thick enough to coat back of spoon, 3-5 minutes. Custard should retain a line drawn across the back of the spoon with fingertip.
  • Step 5 Remove pan from heat; stir in chilled cream to stop cooking. Pour custard through a fine sieve into a medium bowl set in ice bath; let stand, stirring occasionally, until chilled.
  • Step 6 Stir in extract.
