It’s summer and that means this week #SundaySupper is preparing by making our favorite dishes using summer berries. I wish I could get fresh berries year round because they are definitely my favorite fruits. I didn’t even have to think twice about what I was making this week because I’ve really been wanting to make fruit salsa and this is the perfect time to make it!
Fruit salsa can really be made with any fruits mixed with fruit jam and a little sugar. It’s very easy to make and is great when you have a lot of fruit that’s going to go bad soon. No one can resist the sweet and tart combination of fruit served with homemade cinnamon sugar chips!
I made my salsa using strawberries, blackberries, apples, pears, and kiwi. I already had the apples and pears but I had to go to the store for the other fruits. I originally was going to use cherry jam but when I went in the basement to my canning pantry I saw homemade raspberry jam and decided I needed to use that since the theme is berries.
The chips were so good I had to stop myself from eating each one as they came out of the oven. Simple spray a flour tortilla with cooking spray, toss with cinnamon and sugar, cut with a pizza cutter, and bake. Viola! Homemade cinnamon sugar chips. The combination of crispy, spiced chips with the sweet and tart fruit salsa is the perfect pairing for summer picnics and BBQ’s.
