TROUBLE SEEING OUR VIDEO?

Kayla and Olivia's dad, Mr. Pete owns Seedling Fruit Farm in South Haven, Michigan. Seedling is an orchard with about 18 varieties of apples. They also raise a number of different types of berries.

Mr. Pete made up this fun recipe for micro-mini strawberry shortcakes that you can take anywhere with you - that's if they make it out of the kitchen!

Olivia from Seedling Fruit Farm is being helped in the kitchen today by her cousin, Anna S. Let's hear it for cousins!

{Makes 10-15 depending on the size of the strawberries }

You'll need:

  • A pint of strawberries
  • 2-3 graham crackers
  • Whipped cream in a can

Equipment:

  • A colander
  • A small knife
  • A zipper sandwich bag
  • A rolling pin
  1. Rinse the berries and let them drain.
  2. Break a graham cracker in two and slip it into the zipper bag. Close it securely.
  3. Use your fingers or a rolling pin to crush it until you have fine crumbs.
  4. Cut bottom off a strawberry so it will sit upright on the plate. Then cut the green top off the strawberry and hollow out the center. We found a grapefruit knife, with a slight curve at the tip, works best.
  5. Shake the can of whipped cream well.
  6. Squirt a little whipped cream into the top of the berry.
  7. Sprinkle some graham cracker crumbles on top.
  8. Take a bite. Yum!
