Sweet and tart fruit enhanced by fragrant spices makes this Curry Rhubarb BBQ Sauce a fun way to enhance your grilled chicken and pork. Why is it you can never grow just a little bit of rhubarb? It seems to be none or way too much. I can't remember the last time I bought rhubarb, I usually end up rescuing some, or helping out a friend. Last year we made a Rhubarb Habanero BBQ Sauce, but this one is my new favorite! Curry Rhubarb BBQ Sauce will be made by the batch, pressure canned, and enjoyed all summer long!
Hi everyone, how the heck have you been? It feels like it has been a while, where have you been? Oh… It's been us that have been absent? Oh, I'm sorry. I have to be honest, I don't know what to talk about today. I have reels of ideas swimming thru my head, but I'm not sure where to start….
I have been experimenting with sourdough, but I find I forget about it and end up growing mold. It has to be fed twice a day, but unlike a child, or animal, or another human, it doesn't remind you when you forget to feed it. Those microorganisms just suffer in silence. This is frustrating because I feel like I need to teach myself how to bake killer bread before I can paleo-ize a recipe. Hard to brew and bake a perfect loaf if you are growing luxurious mold instead of bubbly happy sourdough.
I am sticking close to home this weekend, it is a long weekend here in Canada. I LOVE adventures, trying new things, and seeing new places, but I am exceptionally excited to spend the weekend at home. I'm going to arrange my spare room in anticipation of summer house guests, move the cookbooks to the living room and clean out the closet. Then it's to the canning room, canning will be rotated and taken stock of, and then empty jars will be inspected and organized. Of course after all that cleaning; I'll need a nap. Then I will wash, chop and stew the 10 lbs of rescued rhubarb and make a couple batches of Curry Rhubarb BBQ Sauce and try out my new-to-me pressure canner! Maybe while I catch up on some HBO. Do you have a great show? What are your weekend plans?
