Blackberry Lime Crumble

Blackberry Lime Crumble

Hello and Happy Summer, Everyone!

As a teacher, I relentlessly plan, facilitate, and improve throughout the school year to ensure that my students’ needs are met, and I’m doing the best that I can to guide them. I love my job and the people with whom I work, but I also try to embrace the freedom of summer.

Even though it is the summer time, I have been trying to keep up somewhat of a routine. You see, I’m a girl on the go. I like to feel a sense of purpose and accomplishment. Therefore, my weekdays have constantly stayed the same. I’ve been waking up at 4:45 AM (I know, I’m crazy) with Joshua to workout and weight lift. We eat breakfast together and play J6 through our Amazon Echo, then he heads to work, and I plan out my day.

 

 

My days have included some berry picking, hikes with Cabott (my dog), reading for pleasure, and meeting up with friends. It has been wonderful so far.

 

I wanted to share a recipe with you today that has been in the works for a while. Strawberry season has come and gone in Connecticut, but I’m anxiously awaiting the fresh blackberries and raspberries here. While I have been waiting, I was approached by the Oregon Raspberry & Blackberry Commission to create a recipe using frozen berries from Oregon and I was up for the challenge.

The Oregon Raspberry & Blackberry Commission works with local farms to promote fresh and frozen Oregon berries. They are always a pleasure to work with and do some amazing things in the community as well.

 

 

Using the resources and guidelines given to me, I whipped up a delicious and summer friendly Blackberry Lime Crumble. This crumble has the perfect amount of tartness to sweetness ratio and is perfect for a small gathering or picnic. You can serve it hot or cold with a giant scoop of ice cream or swirl of whip cream.
