I’ve pretty much had it with my local grocery store. When we moved here, we were excited that particular store was in town because we loved the ones of the same brand near where we were previously living. Little did we know this was the second worst in the area. Products constantly out of stock and typically the same things over and over. You’d think management would get a clue and stay on top of things, especially if they see there is demand for it. Nope.

And making matters worse… the produce. It’s a regular problem at this store that the produce won’t be as fresh as could possibly be. Sure, most things are shipped in from other locations, given that we’ve only begun our Spring here. But, that’s no excuse for subpar products, especially when other stores throughout the region are capable of keeping better stock and quality than them.

Case in point… strawberries. They’re often on their last days at this store, or worse… moldy. I got these beauties at Target of all places, but that is one of the furthest regular stores I shop at. Not worth a trip just for strawberries… or is it? It honestly just might be at this rate.

I dream of the day I have my own garden and don’t have to worry about local stores and their quantities or quality of products. Until then, I’m on the hunt for a new store, even if it means driving a little further. I’m planning on checking out my local BJ’s wholesale store in the coming days to see what their selection and prices are like. I’ve heard rumors they offer more organic produce at even better prices than regular stores. Is it true?

Growing up, I loved fruit leather. I still do. Clearly. But, I prefer homemade. It’s so easy to make and offers a world of flavor possibilities. Seriously, endless possibilities. And such simple ingredients, it’s really a no brainer.. you have to make your own fruit leather!

I’ve mostly stuck to single fruit varieties in the past, but wanted to shake things up this time and make a very berry variety. The more berries, the better! I packed this fruit leather full of fresh strawberries, raspberries, blueberries and blackberries. The result… an amazingly flavorful homemade snack, perfect for the entire family! My 5 year old was obsessed and kept requesting more. Clearly I need to make fruit leather more regularly, since it was such a huge hit! I’m positive, it’ll be just as big of a hit at your house too!

Be sure to add this tasty homemade very berry fruit leather to your baking plans!
