I had to post a few pictures of my recent strawberry endeavors. I will be updating and doing a switcheroo to my sidebar soon-when I gather enough courage to do something new. In the meantime, because you are all DYING to know what I did with all those strawberries...I will list them here.
10 jars of Strawberry Lemon Marmalade
4 jars strawberry rhubarb compote
7 jars strawberry freezer jam
8 jars Strawberry Pineapple freezer jam
Of course, we have had summer strawberry chicken salad and strawberies to snack on too. Oh-and a strawberry shake was in order. Unfortunately, I didn't have any ice cream in the house. So~I fudged it and it turned out REALLY well, I think. I used heavy whipping cream in place of the icecream. So refreshing!
Oh-and guess what ELSE I made with it? My very own, never tried before, homemade Strawberry Sorbet! I haven't tasted it yet, kinda waiting for a special occasion. I have two entirely different recipes to make sorbet. I will be making BOTH of them and deciding which I like better. One is with a fruit juice base, the other a buttermilk base. We shall see!
Now, I am off to do a bit of stitching. Bandana play aprons, pillowcase nighties, all sorts of goodies just itching to be made! ;-)
