The volunteer wild strawberries in my garden have borne fruit. As I recall, last year I was picking wild strawberries the third week of June, so they are a bit early. Which is good, since they have spread to the point of taking up a large part of the garden itself, but once they've blossomed and I know they're going to set fruit, I can't bear to uproot them.
So on Saturday, we were picking berries. Jupiter ate them fresh off the plants, despite the dirt, but I managed to hoard a small handful. Not near enough for jam. But maybe enough to flavor something else.
I had some fresh homemade yogurt that had already had the whey strained from it. So I popped that into the donvier ice cream maker with 1/3 cup of sugar and the garden strawberries.
It froze into a delightful frozen yogurt in just about 10 minutes.
Completely excellent frozen yogurt, with still a nice yogurty tang to it. And Jupiter didn't like it because she thought it tasted too yogurty. So now I don't have to share it with her.
Then I had to make more yogurt, so I can make more frozen yogurt.
I adore the yogurt maker and the ice cream maker. Someday when I win the lottery, I am going to stay home and cook delicious food all day.
