Life On and Off an Acreage

In-sights into moving from an Acreage back to Town, plus a few things I find of interest.

Two things that horses are scared about:

1. Things that move
2. Things that don't move

It's nice to come home from vacation and find this! The raspberry bushes are starting to ripen.
 The last two days I have picked 36 cups of raspberries. When on vacation, I noticed raspberries on sale for $4.95 per cup! The first picking  works out to $178.00 of berries!
 And converted them to these! Raspberry Crisp!
 Coming out of the oven they look and smell great. The first one was sacrificed to see if it tasted as good as it looks. It did.
 I will be switching to jam on the next picking to bring the larder back up.
There is not much better than Raspberry Crisp, with a big scoop of ice cream!

I could not find a recipe, so I developed my own.

2 cups of sugar
3/4 cup of rice flour (allergies to gluten)
1 tsp salt
2 tsp of cinnamon

Mix the above in a bowl then add 1/3 cup margarine and make the crumble with a fork.

Place over 4 cups of raspberries in an 8X8 aluminum pan and cook for 45 minutes at 350F

I use the disposable pans.

Add one cup of coffee and enjoy! Keep coffee separate from the crumble.

Raspberries are right high up on my list of great garden stock. They don't take much work and produce year after year, much like rhubarb for minimal care.
