What I am eating....

Strawberries can be eaten with wine, red, the way the Italians do. Just slice, slather with a bit of nice red, let it sit for 10 minutes or so and consume on its own or with ricotta. Make you own ricotta with raw milk. A lesson in cheese making can be had in Deerfield and as for raw milk, you have to know somebody.

Contrary to popular belief, rhubarb is available all summer. Just ask the people how have it growing in their yard. Rhubarb in something besides a crisp or a pie might be the famous Rhubarb Gastrique! Which is rhubarb cooked down with some red wine. Very nice with duck or chicken.
