A little gardening to pass the time…

…and a day well spent.

For the strawberry jam recipe, check here. For the vinegar, just let those berry tops marinate for 12 hours or so, strain the vinegar out and boil it for a bit (you can add some sugar here if you like, but I just left it as is with plans to mix it up with honey and oil for salad dressings this summer). Process the vinegar just as you did your jam.

    after canning salsa last week, I’ve been thinking about making some jam – what a great idea for using the strawberry tops to make vinegar! The dressing is very yummy!

    I’m trying to make the strawberry vinegar tonight! If it works, it’s going straight into salad dressing this very week :) Thanks for the cool idea!

    As soon as I opened your blog, I knew I would make it a favorite. How beautiful! My daughters and I will be trying out the strawberry vinegar….. I think it will be wonderful with our summer salads. I wonder if you could use whole raspberries?

    I think that everything typed was very reasonable.
    But, what about this? suppose you added a little information? I mean, I don’t
    wish to tell you how to run your blog, but suppose
    you added a headline that grabbed a person’s attention? I mean waste not | the cottage at frog creek is a little boring.
    You ought to peek at Yahoo’s home page and note how they create
    post headlines to grab people to click. You might add a video
    or a pic or two to grab people excited about what you’ve got to say.
    Just my opinion, it might bring your blog a little livelier.

    Look into my web blog :: Elsword Hack (http://Www.Youtube.com/watch?v=FT9Npdp1MzQ)
