With berry season upon us, there is no excuse not to enjoy this “berry-licious” dessert that you can also make for a snack using local crops grown right here in the luscious fruit fields of Bakersfield. Murray recommends you make this healthy dish with fresh, hand-picked cherries and boysenberries, but you can make it with just about any berry. And here in Kern County, we grow them in abundance. And the best part is that aside from being deliciously refreshing, this treat is also great for your body.

Entertaining the Bakersfield Way by Miles Johnson
Hors d’oeuvres need not be cheese and cracker plates fussily attended to with just the right sprig of dill on each delicate wedge of Lacey Swiss. Who has that kind of time? Sometimes, a simple, fiery dip is all it takes to whet the appetite in preparation for the meal and evening ahead. Served with blue corn tortilla chips, Italian bread sticks, or sliced vegetables, a bowl of this ultra-simple spicy dip will please everyone, especially the host.
