In the midst of the red!


It's been a very red weekend.  Here's some of the redness.

 Daughter #2 helped to chop and measure.


 Add the sugar, cornstarch, a little grating of lemon zest and mix ...


 Voila!  
6 of 10 strawberry rhubarb pies -- 1 to bake and eat, 5 for gifts, 4 for the freezer so we can enjoy bits of summer during the winter.

Plus the freezer bags for crisps and muffins and other good things.

And to reward the chefs, there's still a punnet of the very best of the strawberries -- red and juicy and ready for popping in one's mouth.

Here's to the goodness of summer!

Oh what a site! Did you grow the rhubarb? I am going to put some in the ground in the fall. It is just too hard to find around here And rhubarb and strawberry is the hubby's favorite.
