Frozen Strawberry Mousse

Source: Food Combining for Health
Date tried: May 17, 2014
Yield: 2-3 servings
Time needed: Just a few minutes to make, but needs a few hours in the freezer

Making this brought the old Mother Goose rhyme back to my head.

Curly Locks, Curly Locks, wilt thou be mine?
Thou shalt not do dishes, nor yet feed the swine,
but sit on a cushion and sew a fine seam
and feed upon strawberries, sugar and cream.

Curly Locks would have swooned at this combination of “strawberries, sugar and cream”, though actually honey is used in this version.  And it gets frozen for a delightfully cool treat on a hot day.  Haven’t seen one of those this year yet.  No matter, it tastes great unfrozen too.  And you can eat it sooner.

Paul’s Ambrosia

Date tried:November 14, 2017
Yield:6 servings
Time needed: 20 minutes + time to chill

I like fruit salads and I liked this one. I liked the addition of cheese. The dressing is best sweet. Recommended as a breakfast, a lunch or a dessert, but can also be used as a side to the main course with less sweetening. The larger amounts of spices are intended for a sweet version.

A fruit crisp is always a favourite dessert. I made the strawberry version today, as I had both rhubarb and strawberries in the freezer, , but I must try the sorrel version next spring when fresh sorrel is available.

Canned Grape Juice

Source: Simply in Season
Date tried: August 28. 2012
Yield: 1 quart
Time needed: just a few minutes once the container has been sterilized.

I was pleasantly surprised, not only by how easy this is to put together, but by how good the resulting juice is.

Canned Grape Juice

Canned Grape Juice
1 cup/250 ml Concord-style grapes, washed
½ cup/125 ml sugar
boiling water to fill jar.

Place the grapes in a hot, sterilized quart jar.
Add the sugar and fill jar with boiling water to within ½ inch/1 cm of top.

Note: to avoid cracking jar, place a metal utensil such as a table knife in the jar to absorb the heat of the boiling water.

Stir briefly to dissolve sugar.
Seal jar with sterile lid.  No further processing is necessary.

To serve, just strain and discard the grapes.  The juice is ready to drink once chilled.
