Sometimes when you are first starting out with your garden your harvests can be small. In Sean Conway's book Cultivating Life, he has a terrific recipe for small batch preserves. The recipe requires one cup of fruit and about four other ingredients that you are sure to already have in your kitchen. It took me 30 minutes to cook up this strawberry version. It needs to be consumed with in a couple weeks but trust me you will have no problem once you start slathering it on your ice cream or toast! I will be whipping this recipe up multiple times this season.
