Summer Harvest

One of the joys of early summer is the arrival of fresh, locally-grown strawberries and rhubarb.  Yes, they come into season at the same time in this part of the world, so I’m able to make my favourite rhubarb and strawberry jam.

There is something quite therapeutic about chopping fruit and stirring it as it simmers gently.

The end result is a beautiful red jam, capturing the flavours of early summer.

It is lovely to have a few jars put aside for later in the year, though they may not last that long, as I’ve already finished one jar.

However you are spending your time this summer, I hope you stay safe and well.
