Carnival #126 - Summer's Bounty

Welcome to this week's edition of the Make it from Scratch carnival.

July is almost over, and that means a bounty of summer produce to enjoy. Whether you grow your own or buy your fresh produce, there is nothing quite as good as that fresh from the garden taste of summer. This week's carnival features ways to use and preserve that summer goodness.

The Bounty of Summer

Uncanny presents Cherry Jelly posted at Adventures in My Freezer. Isn't that jelly just a beautiful?!

We planted rhubarb this year. It didn't make it. The next two recipes make me think I need to try again! Cricket presents Rhubarb Pudding Cake posted at Smiling Country Ranch.
