First Rhubarb of the Season

May 16th, 2016

Yesterday, I harvest the first rhubarb of the season. I have some frozen strawberries from last year’s harvest that I have saved for this day. A delicious strawberry rhubarb sauce was made, which will be stirred into semifreddo to make a strawberry rhubarb ice cream.

It’s such a wonderful flavor combination, no wonder it’s so popular. Of course I made more than I needed for ice cream, so I’ll have it to stir into yogurt as well. I’m happy as can be that the harvest season has arrived, it’s such a wonderful feeling to be eating seasonal fruits and vegetables once again, especially those harvested from my garden!

What are you harvesting from your garden?
