On July 29, we had our first apple harvest thanks to Lynda and Darrell.
- raw, right off the bush
Manitoba strawberries are ready for picking. Going to a U-pick strawberry farm and making strawberry freezer jam made it on to my kids’ list of things they want to do this summer.
If whole wheat, oats and honey instead of sugar are important to you, here’s a muffin that meets those criteria and is still super delicious. Got this one from Canadian Living. They added sunflower seeds instead of rhubarb – but they were equally delicious with rhubarb.
1 cup (250 mL) buttermilk (milk and lemon juice alternate)
1 cup (250 mL) whole wheat flour
1-1/2 tsp (7 mL) baking powder
1/2 tsp (2 mL) baking soda
1/2 tsp (2 mL) ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp (1 mL) salt
1/3 cup (75 mL) liquid honey
1/3 cup (75 mL) vegetabIe oil
1/4 cup (50 mL) packed brown sugar
1/2 cup (75 mL) rhubarb
