What to do with strawberries


Today was a kitchen day, mostly.  Those strawberries were so fresh, I had to take advantage of them.  (Hey, that doesn’t sound quite right, does it.)  I found this recipe for Rhubarb-Strawberry Sauce, and made one test batch.   Afterall, its an all time favorite combo: strawberries and rhubarb, sweet and tangy.  This is a worthy recipe, most definitely.  I made 2 more batches.  But  rather than freeze them, I put them in glass canning jars and processed them in a hot water bath.  Wish I could include a taste, but you’ll have to settle for a picture:

This sauce will be yummy over ice cream, yogurt, toast or hot cereal.   I shall have my own homemade preserves in my pantry, isn’t that exciting!  It does make my heart sing! 

For supper, I made that  Strawberry Spinach Salad.  We have all had Strawberry Salad before, with lettuce.  This recipe beats them all, especially with the goat cheese accompaniment.  I could eat this every day.  A little over 200 calories per serving is a bonus too.

More strawberry adventures are in store for tomorrow…hope they turn out as well.
