Mmmm...

We got this food magazine with a large section on making your own jam and cordial a few weeks ago. Something I've always wanted to do but never done...

Instead of just thinking "oh it would be so nice" and then forgetting about it, we actually decided to give it a go. We'd already picked up a juice strainer when we were in Sweden for this exact purpose, so out we went to the supermarket to buy the fruit. Strawberries and rhubarb...mmm!! A really nice rhubarb crumble has to be one of my favourite desserts ever...

We followed the recipe and waited and waited for the cordial to cool down. Time to taste... OMG!!! That was just sooo nice...first you got the strawberry taste, then the rhubarb and it just screamed "summer"! Yummy!!! Definitely something we'd do again :)
