Hello Spring! Strawberries are in the shops again.
Despite the recommended plunge in water with vinegar, they always seem to deteriorate too soon, so I stewed them up with a sprinkle of sugar, some lemon peel and a dash of vanilla.
I also did a batch of the very first rhubarb I´ve ever laid eyes on in Spain. They were in the window of a frutería downtown and I decided I had to have some on the spot. Turned out they were imported from Holland and priced at 9€ a kilo!
Note to self - immediately plant rhubarb.
