I'm Ready for Strawberries

Last year I had a flat of strawberries and no rhubarb. Horrors! For some reason, despite the fact that they go really well together, nature does not cooperate and produce them at the same time. So I have to plan ahead.

Today I saw rhubarb in the grocery store. So I bought 3 pounds and froze it all after dicing it. Add that to the 2 pounds I froze last summer, and I am totally ready! Strawberry rhubarb pie and jam are in our near future!

  1. Just makes you realize that if you want to eat and cook what is seasonably ready, you would have to do without a lot of the recipes we have now.

  2. True. But isn't that why we preserve and freeze?
