Strawberries

A couple weekends ago, we went strawberry picking! I found a great website, NH Strawberry Field and Farmstand Guide, with a large list of strawberry picking places in NH. I was able to find one field about an hour away that was still picking in the afternoon: Rossview Farm. We brought our own bowls and ended up with almost 14lbs.

We made a couple father's day presents with them, ate a bunch, froze some, and Joel made honey strawberry ice cream.


Of course, then we had all those strawberry tops and greens that I did not want to waste. I could have given them to the chickens, but I decided to make strawberry vinegar instead! It looks so pretty! I can use the vinegar for a strawberry salad dressing by adding some honey and oil.


And then today I decided to make one of the strawberry rhubarb deserts that I froze the strawberries for. I found this recipe that seemed really basic - and I love basic recipes! I did like it, but I think I'll make more topping and add a thickener to the filling next time because it had a lot of liquid (the filling only consisted of strawberries, rhubarb and honey). It will solidify a little when it cools, but I'd love it to be a little thicker when it comes out of the oven.

This was a great recipe for me to have because we primarily sweeten our food with honey. This called for some brown sugar in the crumble, but you can't get away from that.
