Last week I hit the strawberry field - two baskets for me, one for an older lady I know. The berries are plentiful and the picking was easy.
I made my usual two batches of jam when I got home.
My little rhubarb plant actually had enough to pick yesterday so I made a rhubarb strawberry crunch dessert and was it good!! I pinned it a few days ago, the original recipe comes from All Recipes - you can see it right here - I didn't make any changes to it, it's delicious.
I bought a new small kitchen appliance that is going to be so great for summer - Yonanas- The Healthy Dessert Maker - have you heard of it? I hadn't until a few weeks ago when Joann wrote about it on her blog - Woman in Real Life, I took the plunge last week and bought one - we tried it out yesterday - it's going to be great and so nice for a hot summer day.
It uses all frozen fruit, the main base is the frozen banana - it makes a fat free dessert, a dairy free dessert and it's all fruit - what could be better! The worst part is waiting for the bananas to get to the cheetah stage - at that point, you freeze them and then wait....
We made banana strawberry - we shared it for lunch - it was just enough and so cool and refreshing.
I bought mine at Walmart, it was $29.94CDN - it was less expensive than when I looked at them in June. I think we'll get our money's worth - peach, raspberry, pineapple, chocolate - I want to try them all!!!
