Lots of Strawberries

We went picking strawberries on Saturday

It only took half an hour to pick these two baskets!

I had rhubarb too, so that means a strawberry/rhubarb pie - Pyrex Pink is perfect for this combo

Strawberry Rhubarb Pie with Meringue - yummm!! The recipe is from Taste of Home - click here for the recipe - I used my own recipe for pie crust - Pyrex Pink is perfect!

I made this Strawberry Arugula Salad twice this week - of course, I used Pyrex again! My mother in law gave me this bowl, and it turned out to be one that is really used a lot!!  This could be our new salad for the summer - another one from Taste of Home - here's the recipe

I love the strawberry/rhubarb combination - so I searched for a nice muffin recipe - these are really tasty!!!  The recipe for Nut Topped Strawberry Rhubarb Muffins is from Taste of Home too!

The main reason I went picking was to make strawberry jam - here they are, crushed  and whole - of course, the Pyrex was put into use again..

Two batches of strawberry jam - I used the recipe included with in the  Certo package - here it is!

I'm linking up to Rednesday - it's a perfect post for everything red!!  I'm also linking up with The Bunny Hop Party and Open House Party for the very first time!

  2. I absolutely love fresh strawberries! That strawberry arugula salad looks delish and perfect for summer.

  3. Oh wow! Everything looks so delicious. There's nothing quite like fresh strawberries; the ones we buy in the grocery store have no flavor at all. YUMMY!

  4. The strawberry preserves look yummy!

  5. Hi Jill. Just popped over from Pinterest where I've begun following several of your boards. Great stuff there. I'm a displaced bluenoser living in Alberta. I'll follow you here too. Your blog is great.

  6. Our strawberries were ripe in February, I love the long season as it travels north! Yummmm!

  7. Oh, as for the stones on my blog, I'm into yard art these days, plate flowers and totems. The stones make great "pollen" inside the center cups.

  8. Hi Jill!

    I love strawberries and Pyrex!
    I just picked up a clear bowl with blues flowers on it at GW this week.

    Thanks for sharing at my party this week!
