Rhubarb Recipe Round Up

We inherited our rhubarb from my mother-in-law’s property. Lucky for us the bulbous root is prolific. Alongside my monthly pot of fresh strawberry rhubarb preserves, I’ve made a few wonderful desserts with it so far -most from Pinterest, natch. Here are a few more things I recommend you try: From A Run Away Spoon on […]

Rhubarb Polenta Cake

About two weeks ago, I arrived home to a large bunch of gorgeous, fuschia rhubarb delivered by a dear friend who knows of and shares in my love of rhubarb. Three cheers for door to door rhubarb deliveries. And as the cooking gods would have it, the lovely Alana over at Eating from the Ground […]

Steam Canning – Strawberry Rhubarb and Apricot Preserves

I love my steam canner. I find it so much easier to use then submerging Mason jars into large pots of boiling water. While searching the web for information on steam canning, I was surprised to find that there are some groups that suggest it isn’t adequate for preserving high acid foods. I find this […]

Rhubarb BBQ Sauce

Well rhubarb has gone full circle in my kitchen: Traditional stewed rhubarb from the Fanny Farmer Cookbook, totally amazing rhubarb jam and a tangy, sweet rhubarb BBQ sauce. This recipe for compote is still on my list but rhubarb is on the wane so it might have to wait until next year.  It is now time for […]

Rhubarb Jam, The French Way

Last year, I saw this recipe on Chocolate & Zucchini, a lovely blog written by Clotilde Dusoulier.  I made a mental note to try the recipe this year and WOW, what a fantastic recipe!

Cool Sips for Hot Days

Classic Jam Bars

During the pantry/fridge clean out, I found myself with an extensive collection of jams.  Between recipe development, splendid gifts and impulsive purchases, I had too much of a good thing. Did I mention that I am the only person in my home that consumes jam? Enter the jam bar, an easy, tasty treat that makes […]

Cooking More or Less?

"From Scratch?" BBQ Beef Ribs ready to go into the oven. Michael Pollan’s recent article, Out of the Kitchen and onto the Couch has got me in a lather.  It is a long article, worth reading, especially if you work in the food biz.  Its basic premise is that true cooking is archaic and that Americans prefer to […]

Easter À La Diana Shafroth

Pickle ball, croquet, an egg hunt, and sometimes snow. Yes, that is usually Easter in the Rockies. My in-laws always make it fun with lottery tickets and mini bottles of booze hidding with the eggs and chocolates! Everyone participates in the Easter Egg hunt. This year we made Diana proud even in the rainy, cold weather. […]
