My mom and dad have been visiting for the last week, its been great having them around. My dad is Mr. Fix-it, so we have been finishing the downstairs bathroom ( it was just a toilet in a room, no sink or lights, etc). It is going to look great when its finished. I will share a photo when its done :)
I have also had access to a point and shoot camera, thanks mom and dad!
When I have my table at the market there are always other vendors that are willing to do trades and I got a big bag of rhubarb! I left it in the fridge for a few days trying to figure out what I wanted to do with it, and I finally decided to make a marmalade with it. I have little experience with canning, but my mom was here and she encouraged the no pectin. So I went for it. It turned out perfect, not to sweet and with a little tang.
Rhubarb Citrus Marmalade
2 pounds of rhubarb
3 cups organic sugar
1 cup strawberries- sliced1/2 grapefruit

- Next add grapefruit, orange and ginger into the food processor (peel and all) and whiz until finely minced
