Strawberry Rhubarb Oatmeal Bake


A local strawberry stand called Ferlito’s Berry Patch opened for business Wednesday, which means its OFFICIALLY strawberry season! Woohoo! It’s a big deal when Ferlito’s opens because it marks the unofficial start of summer here.  It also means Father’s Day is near by, school is letting out soon and strawberry flavored everything is going to become a staple for dessert over the next month.

If you live in the area or want to take a trip to Oswego, you can just drive up to their road stand and buy already picked strawberries by the quart.  They also offer a U-Pick option where you can roam the fields and pick berries to your hearts content.  At this very moment the strawberries are only available at the stand but according to their Facebook page, U-PIck starts on the 18th of June! I can’t  wait :)  

Here is a glimpse at the beautiful bright strawberries they had available when I stopped by…all bursting with sweet deliciousness! As you can see every berry was boasting with perfection, I wanted to buy them all but since sharing is caring I left some for the rest of the city to sample.

 I could hardly wait to get busy in the kitchen when I got home and since I had fresh rhubarb from my CSA box on hand, I naturally had to pair the two. Here is the quick recipe I whipped up. It would taste great for breakfast or perfect for dessert served with some whipped cream or ice cream!

The chia seeds in this recipe aren’t completely necessary but they do help to hold it together a bit, just make sure that you mix them thoroughly or else you’ll end up with random crunchy black bits. It is also served best warm fresh out of the oven but can be easily reheated.

This is just the first of a few recipes I have in mind. I already ate all of the strawberries I bought; I will be going back for more soon! :)

Have you ever been to a U-Pick strawberry farm? What is your favorite way to enjoy strawberries?
