And then later I was a bit bored, so I took all the strawberries that were sitting in the fridge and added sliced lemon peel and made a preserve out of that mess. I used a juice of a small lemon to add acid and balance it out a bit because I added way more sugar than should have been used.
Rain, herbs and preserves
It's been raining all day today and will be raining through tomorrow. We're on flash-flood watch since Sunday night when powerful storm knocked out power for 5000 people and few trees along the way. Since I can't do much outside, I only sneaked into the garden for few minutes to snip some herbs - basil, mint, oregano, thyme, rosemary and sage; Red Russian kale and few scallions.
