As the weather begins to change from winter to spring, just as the buds are forming on the trees and the daffodils are blooming my family starts requesting fruit salsa. It has become such a favorite that I thought I would share it with you.
Gather together the following fruits:
4-5 medium apples
16 oz. package of frozen raspberries (or fresh)
16 oz. package of frozen peaches (or fresh)
2 – 16 oz. containers of strawberries
All of the fruit needs to be chopped or diced into small pieces. I prefer to utilize my food processor for all the fruit except the apples. Make sure that the pieces are not too small if using the food processor or your salsa will be runny.
For the apples, the kids are always eager to help using our peeler, slicer and corer. After they are done, I chop the slices into small pieces and add to the rest of the fruit.
Now it is time to make the cinnamon chips. Bake in a preheated oven at 425 degrees for 7-9 minutes. These are really easy to make and so yummy!
As I was making this the other day for Easter I got to thinking about the ingredients. Although each one is good on its own, when they are blended together they are even better. The same thing is true in our lives. In Romans 8:28 it says that “God works all things together to good.” He uses everything in our life – the good, the bad, the bitter, the dry – to blend together to form something better than any of the ingredients on their own. So as you as sitting down with your cinnamon chips and fruit salsa, I want you to think about how God is using the various “ingredients” in your life to make something wonderful.
I would love to hear from you today. You can either share what God is doing in your life or maybe even pass along a favorite recipe of your own.
