Seasonal Endeavors

I was pretty busy last week and solo parenting at the same time, but my neighbor gave me a whole load of rhubarb and some cucumbers too so I had no choice but to get busy and preserve it or I would have been lamenting its absence all winter.

Rhubarb macerating (note, WAY too long slices, despite halving recipe recommendation of 4 inches) and pickles in salt water

I made rhubarb jam, bread and butter pickles, and a lovely rhubarb custard pie to bring to friends for dinner.

Yum, but the jam is too stringy. Chop it up smaller!
