This recipe for the Berry Delicious Slushie was the classroom favorite in our recent Kids
Cooking Class! We had a busy group of kids who helped us cook up 4 different recipes that are focused around spring harvest.
This recipe is simple, refreshing and made with homegrown strawberries, of course. My favorite part of the day was seeing lots of smiles as the kids sipped the fruits of their labors.
Join us for the next hands-on cooking classes for kids on June 22 or 29. Kids ages 5 and younger will enjoy our “Mommy and Me” classes from 9:30 to 11 a.m. Kids ages 5 and older will enjoy the “Kids” classes from 1 to 3 p.m. During these classes, we will ride a wagon to the fields to see what is ready to pick! Then we will cook up some fun in the classroom, as usual.
