I did get a little sun as well, ya, another living on the edge moment, that I will totally agree was dumb for sure. I never even thought about it as I headed outside first thing in the morning, as my fam was having french toast, made by hubby, I was mowing my first patch of lawn. When I get motivated I gotta do it, or it will be lost and I will be on to something else, probably of less importance. Anyway by the time I had to drive my daughter to her friend's house, and change out of my most righteously fashionable yard working ensemble , by order of my daughter, who really didn't even want me pulling into her friend's driveway for fear that I may be spotted looking my absolute
I love rhubarb, first of all it's free, and second it's tartness is so dang yummy. From picking it fresh and dipping in sugar, ya feel your cheeks suck in, that's what I'm talking about, tart yumminess. To stewing, to baking, to making jam, it's all good. I can't wait to have my sprouted grain toast with rhubarb jam in the morning. Bah, who am I kidding I could eat that jam with a spoon, never mind on toast, kind of like 'medicine'. Ya, medicine, that's it. I will admit that I licked the pot clean after jarring up my batch. I just use the recipe in the Certo box for all my jams, I have learned which ones to tweak and how to ensure setting of the jam or jelly. I am a regular jam and jelly maker with the fruits and vegies of the season. I am actually typing to the sound of my jars 'snapping'. The sound of success, right there. Even if the jam or jelly doesn't set, put it in the fridge and use it up right away. Give some jars away to friends and family with instructions to refrigerate. The taste will be the same, and should not go to waste. It's all good, who cares, change the name to sauce instead of jam, who needs to know, heehee :)
Well, we didn't build anything, and we didn't get any new 'treasures' this weekend, as I stayed pretty close to home, we just hung out, kids had fun, we watched movies during the rain. My parents are off on their journey in England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland and I have their little dog for a few weeks. She likes me, I know it, and I like having a small dog around to cuddle up with on the couch with my blanket and coffee on yet another rainy greyish looking day. It keeps the forest fires down, and the grass green, so that keeps me smiling.
What's your favourite rhubarb treat, do you have one or are you not a rhubarb lover? Please share with me as I am always open to new ideas for recipes.
Have a great week.
