Strawberries & CSA
jam recipe that did not use Sure-Jell, just lemon juice, strawberries, and sugar. It taste nice, but it's not as thick as some recipes that I've tried. I dehydrated 10 pounds of berries and filled all 6 trays of the dehydrator. It's amazing how much they shrink! The strawberry chips are now stored in 2 freezer bags. This is the dehydrator that we have, it's wonderful.
The strawberries were purchased in bulk from our CSA, Vollmer Farm, and they arrived in this box....it made me laugh out loud!
Genetically Modified Seeds?
I also love the challenge of cooking with vegetables that I normally never purchase, like rutabaga. Tonight for dinner I mashed them with butter and garlic...everyone loved them, even the baby. Here are a few pictures from week 1 and week 2 of our CSA.
