It was so nice of them, and I'm really happy for some extra goodies.
There was lettuce, cherry tomatoes, turnips, broccoli, strawberries, strawberry jam, and a loaf of wheat bread!
How incredibly nice. I hope the other ladies who waited with me were as pleasantly surprised as I was.
My regular share was nice too...
Pretty quickly I made a jar of rhubarb jam from my CSA share.
I just cut the pieces into 1 inch(ish) pieces, added a little sugar, a splash of lemon juice, and a little butter and let it simmer for about an hour until it was thickend. I popped a lid on it.
This isn't the NFPA approved way to seal jams, but I've been known to use it on the odd occasion.
It went into the frig after it sealed.
As you can see I've got 2 types of rhubarb.
The dark red one isn't quite as sour as the green, but we like them mixed together.
The rhubarb is doing well in the strawberry bed. I gathered a few berries too.
Not so many this day...I think the squirrels have been helping themselves. Stinkers!
I'll make crushed strawberries with them and serve them over pound cake with whipped cream for Don and berries and cream for me. (I'm gluten intolerant to a huge degree )
I've been toying around with the idea of making a low carb berry cake.
Have you ever eaten rhubarb and do you like it?
