Last weeks hot weather brought out the best in everything, including the strawberries.We are starting to gather some wild ones but for now the tame ones are ready and juicy.
We picked Friday before the heavy rains came, and in the evening after HB went to work we settled in for the evening we began to take on the chore of getting the berries done up and made some jam.
The girls were very helpful and cut up all the rhubarb for me.
We made up a double batch of stewed rhubarb and decided to make a strawberry Rhubarb pie
I still have a bit of rhubarb in the house after doing some more up into 2 cup bags for the freezer,and I will take what is left tonight and make up a batch of muffins for breakfast, as we will be busy packing for our trip to bring our trailer to the camp ground. We will only be staying over night as the weather is so wet this week and we will go there on the weekend again. ( I will not be posting Monday and Tuesday but check back on Wednesday for a post about our adventure taking the trailer.)
If any of you have any great Strawberry or Rhubarb recipes please do share as I am always looking for new ones to add to my cookbook.
