I told you last year and I´ll tell you again today: I love rhubarb! You can cook it, bake it, dye with the leaves or use the stems as a dye-mordant! Yesterday I got some really nice and cheap strawberries and decided to make some strawberry-jam... and since I found a lot of "wild" rhubarb the other day, I wanted it to be a strawberry-rhubarb-jam. I tell you: it was so worth the effort!!
How I did it:
1 kg strawberries
500 g rhubarb
600 g sugar
1 tsp vanilla sugar
enough red melatin to make the jam thick enough (Bónus)
I cut the fruit into small pieces and let them soak in sugar, vanilla sugar and melatin over night. The morning after I cooked the jam until the fruit got really soft and used my hand blender to make the blend smooth. Pour the jam into pretty maison jars and enjoy!
Forget-me-not, picked on my daily walk yesterday... got the pretty little vase in a thriftstore and I love it...
wonderful colours, love the pretty the blue. yellow and white togehter...
got this perfect little vase in a thrifstore too - perfect colourcombo: purple and turquoise...
I picked those on my daily walk too... you can eat the flowers in the back - looks really pretty on a salad!
My older one, Bidenam picked those on his own, yesterday... isn´t this the most perfect bouquet??
