Strawberry Blueberry Fruit Spread

Strawberry Blueberry SpreadWith so many fresh berries out right now, I thought some fresh fruit spread was in order. I used strawberries and blueberries but you could use any combination of berries you like.

This doesn’t have any gelatin in it but it does get thicker as it cooks and then once it’s cooled.

Fresh fruit spread is not only great for brunch but makes a yummy addition to my daughter’s PB&J school lunches.
