After picking bowls full every day for a couple of weeks, it looks like the strawberries are just about done. This week, we kept cool with sorbet and ice cream. I particularly loved the sorbet - super fruity, sweet, light, cool, and incredibly easy to make. The recipe for Fresh Strawberry Sorbet:
This week, I award the first Garden to Table Challenge drawn from the names of GTTC participants. Tangled Branches has won a canning book. I think she has the Ball book, so I'll send The Joy of Pickling - a book I haven't read, but that looks great and has received many great Amazon reviews. Entangled - let me know how it is!
Want to be in it to win it for the next prize (which will occur whenever I think it up)? Simply post about what you're harvesting/cooking up, then link below. Name will be added to the jar for the next prize. The GTTC post will be up every Saturday. Link on the current week's post, whenever you want throughout the week. Don't forget to mention the GTTC in the body of your post. It's the right thing to do. :)
