I love gardens. It’s so wonderful to be able to grow and garden and go out to get fresh produce when you want to make something. Rhubarb is growing really well this time of year, and what goes together better than strawberries and rhubarb? Thankfully, fresh strawberries are also ripe this time of year, so it’s perfect. I made my rhubarb sauce fresh, but I make a huge batch and then can it, so I can have it all year on pancakes, ice cream, and steel cut oats. However, it’s wonderfully fresh and stores well in the fridge.
