The bounty at the farm down the street isn’t quite ready yet, but luckily Whole Foods had a special on strawberries that I couldn’t resist. Strawberries, rhubarb (and maybe some Pliny the Elder) jumped into my basket so I had to come home and make a jar of jam. As usual, one pound of fruit, lowish sugar (scant 1/2c) and no added pectin (except for juice and rind of one lemon) makes one yummy jam. This strawberry rhubarb is my favorite since it’s nice and tangy. I may have to make some bread to complement the jam. Whole Foods seems to have made a lot of work for me!
Hopefully I’ll have a ridiculous franken-patterned dress to share soon. I should clarify, the dress isn’t ridiculous but the fabric is a novelty print that I couldn’t resist. Barring any boo boos, it should be done soon.
