Springtime entertaining is about good food and feasting on life.

When I think of past Easter gatherings, I get all fuzzy-warm inside, because we’ve enjoyed being with great friends and family, in a sunny environment, and there’s always amazing food.

Today’s recipe is a delightful, springy Blueberry Fennel Puff Pastry Tart Recipe, made with Oregon Specialty Fruit Blueberries, and other delicious ingredients. Oregon Fruit Products are an 82-year old family company that processes and cans cherries, blackberries, blueberries, raspberries, and assorted other fruits in Salem, Oregon, located in the heart of the Willamette Valley.

We’ve served this tart several ways. Whole, where everyone cuts their own piece. Or, you allow the tart to cool and cut into small squares for mini appetizers. Whether hot or cold, the flavors mingle together in your mouth with the sweet blueberries, cooked fennel, and goat cheese. So good!

What we love about Oregon Fruit’s products, (besides, look how pretty the cans are! I always spot these right away in the grocery store), is No High Fructose Corn Syrup, Non-GMO, Non-BPA lining, and the cans are packed during summer for maximum ripeness, and flavor!

And guess what, Friends? Oregon Fruit cans are available nationwide! So many friends on the east coast reading this post can enjoy Oregon fruit from afar, as can everyone else in between!

Just because it’s sunny and beautiful in Oregon doesn’t mean that it’s warm and summery yet! When thinking of spring cooking, Oregon Specialty Fruit Cans are a quick and easy way to incorporate the flavor and nutrients of fresh fruit.

So remember, whether we’re creating meals, or using our creativity in setting the table, our celebration this spring is about the newness of life and being together with people we love.

It’s feasting on life, and finding joy in the blessing of food.

  1. Yum! I have not tried their products but knowing there is no HFCS and all the other info, makes me more willing to try it for sure. The tart looks yummy! It definitely isn’t warm yet. Yesterday if I stood in the sun it was nice and warm, but as soon as I moved out of it..brrr..

  2. I LOVE Oregon Fruit! The combo of blueberries and fennel sounds amazing Sandy!

  3. Such a clever recipe! I adore Oregon Blueberries and I really think I need this, like now! <3

  4. I love how you combined sweet and savoury here. Those blueberries look outrageously good. I’ve never tried the Oregon Blueberries, but now I need to!
