Jessica’s Uvilla Berry Sauce

Jessica gave me her recipe, as we were sitting down together at the Gourmet Dinner. Uvillas are SO good! So what a great idea to make them into a sauce.

 Recipe of the Day – Jessica’s Uvilla Berry Sauce


1 c. uvillas, cranberries or Mora berries

1 tsp. cardamom

1 T. chia seeds

1/2 tsp. cinnamon


Combine all ingredients in a blender or food processor. Let sit in the fridge until the chia seeds have made it thick.

Ren’s Chia Uvilla Salad

I happened upon the most wonderful guest, a young man doing so much work around here. Setting up hammocks, fixing the dogs’ escape routes, weeding huge areas after the rain, putting up columns and even always doing his own dishes! He makes doing the tasks that’ve been sitting around look effortless, and plays beautiful music! Music and muscles, what a 24-year old combo. Here is Ren’s recipe for Chia Uvilla Salad:
