Kid Treats You Make

Forgive me, but in past years, I would see a recipe in a magazine while waiting in the Dr.’s office but, unlike many of you (you know who you are), I would ask the receptionist if I paid for the paper would she be able to copy it for me. Then into a box it would go for “later”.

This was eons before I even thought of doing this and  today I was looking through the box and here it is.

This saves  you tons of money and whining when shopping. This is better than candy and 100% more natural for them.

  • 4 cups of their favourite berry, pureed, strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, etc.


  • 4 cups of chopped peaches, cherries, apricots (whatever they like)
  • 1/2 cup berry sugar
  • 1 tbsp. fresh lemon juice


Cook in a saucepan over medium heat for about one half hour, until nice and thick.

Strain through a fine sieve onto a parchment lined cookie sheet, tilting so there are no puddles and  thicker in some spots.

In an oven of 170 degrees bake until completely hydrated (2 1/2-3 hrs).

Cool for 10 minutes and then cut into 4  x 5 inch rectangles. Roll them up in parchment paper and store at room temperature for up to a month. If they last more than 5 minutes actually, I will be surprised.

They are soooooo good and what could be better. Homemade, no preservatives, and not processed in a plant somewhere.

Now, who said this was only for children……gotta run!
