The phone call goes like this...my friend owns a farmers market..
Friend ..." Is Mingalingadingdong there?" (that's what she call me!! her extension of my nickname Ming)
Me... "this is she"
Friend... " Yeah I know its you" " Do you want strawberries"
Me... " sure ...wait ... how many?"
Friend... " I dont know 2-3 flats...you have to use them today"
Me... " What!!! what the HE&% am I going to do with that many strawberries"
Friend... " Shut up your fine, come and get them"
Me ..."Ok see you in a few"
And that's what I did yesterday, ALL DAY!!! ... Can you say Jam and strawberry rhubarb crumble ..recipes to follow.
Strawberry Rhubarb Crumble ...this is an "about" recipe
2 containers strawberries cut in half
1 bunch Rhubarb about 4 stalks cut into pieces 1/2 inch
1 and half cup raw sugar
2 tsp vanilla
Mix these all together in a baking dish
For the crumble...
1 stick butter melted
about 3/4 to 1 cup brown sugar ..I have been using organic and it swear it adds to the flavor!!
3/4 cup rolled oats
3 to 4 tbs. flour
mix together and spread onto fruit mixture bake at 350 for about 45 minutes or until bubbly
Serve with ice cream and enjoy!!
Here is a peek of what I've been creating lately...these are micro mini flowers made with Habu textiles merino held double on a size 10 crochet hook.
The baby bib prototype is coming together well...I am a little slow on it but life has been a bit wonderfully busy. But, it looks like some catch up time is on its way ... that is unless I get another call from my friend... from the market... telling me to shut up and getup there!!! She tends to do this often and I have to say I love it!!! or do I???? ;-)
What is your favorite strawberry recipe? I could use some!!
