  • 2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F.
  2. Spray a cast iron skillet with cooking oil or line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. Add Wish Farms strawberries and pineberries to the prepared pan and sprinkle with dark brown sugar, salt, ground cinnamon, and nutmeg. Stir to combine.
  4. Roast for 15 to 20 minutes or until the berries are bubbly and sticky.
  5. Remove from the oven and let cool.
