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.
