Well I wanted to see if storing fruit in mason jars really worked. It does and better than I thought.
Started on Monday March 6th today is the 11th. Almost 6 days and the mason jar of bananas are still green. Just starting to ripen.
Do not do bananas. They look green and you take them out within an hour they start to sweat and turn black. Within 4 hours total glossed over black.
Im also trying the strawberries. 3 weeks ago I bought 16 ounce strawberries. Left them in the refrigerator for about a week or so. They were a little wilted and so I put them in the jar and it actually revived them for another week.
Today I bought 3 lbs of strawberries and I put them into the mason jars right away. Storing them in the refrigerator.
Banana Strawberry Blueberry Smoothie, a delicious fresh fruit energy drink.
I love having this on days when your mornings are sweltering with heat. It is great anytime of the day.
1/2 cupFrozen Blueberries
2 cups Frozen Strawberries
1 cup Orange Juice
Add orange juice, banana, frozen strawberries and frozen blueberries to the blender in that order. Turn it to smoothie setting if you have. If not pulsate the blender on and off. After a few minutes turn on medium and stop it. Turn on to high until smooth.
Brownie Mix … Duncan Hines-Betty Crocker any one will do.
12″ x 9″ pan
Bake your brownies as directed on box, cut into even squares. 2 cuts down length and 3 cuts on width of pan. Let them cool in the pan before removing them. The brownies can be made a day in advance.
Place one brownie on the bottom and layer with sliced strawberries, whip cream on top, place another brownie on top and layer with strawberries and your whip cream. Go around the edge between the 2 layers of brownies with whip cream and place a full berry on top or you can slice them. If you want to dazzle it up a little, drizzle a bit of melted chocolate over the top of the entire dessert and plate. Simple easy dessert.
