|what to do with all those strawberries.....|
we started slow....kelsey made the requested strawberry shortcake for father's day using a martha stewart recipe. this was light and flakey and absolutely delish! looked gorgeous too.
|like most things kelsey makes.....a work of art|
that was just the warm up...i made a strawberry rhubarb compote from a strawberry slump recipe....very, very yummy........ have had it with greek yogurt for breakfast all week.
......and the next day i started making jam.
recipe after the jump
i had a bunch of rhubarb that i found at the farm stand in essex too...so i decided i would try to make strawberry rhubarb jam......started digging for recipes. this one looked foolproof......i bought the big canner pot at walmart for $19.99 ....and did all the prep work for the cleaning and sterilizing of the jars. all i can say is this entire process is very comforting ...(must be the nurse in me)........so many steps but so satisfying in the end......even washing the jam spots off the counter and stove made me happy!
|washed, cleaned and ready to go|
|directions say to individually squish....crazy! is used a potato masher|
|chopping the rhubarb.....not the best knife skills ....not even |
the right knife! the nail polish color is nice though
