Saturday: Pick strawberries.

Sunday: Make strawberry honey butter.

2 cups strawberries

1 cup honey

4 sticks butter at room temperature

Combine strawberries with 2 tablespoons of the honey.

Bring to a boil and cook for 3-5 minutes, until thickened.

Let cool completely.

Add remaining honey.

Combine all ingredients in stand mixer and blend until completely incorporated.

Monday: Make English Muffin Bread to hold strawberry honey butter.

2 ¼ teaspoons yeast

1 cup flour + 1 ¾ cup flour

1 Tablespoon sugar

½ teaspoon salt

1 ¼ cup warm (not hot) water


Combine the yeast, 1 cup flour, sugar, salt, and water in stand mixer bowl. Mix for three minutes. Add the remaining flour and mix until fully blended.

Butter a 1 ½ or 2 quart casserole dish well and dust with cornmeal. Add dough and arrange evenly. Sprinkle with cornmeal.

Cover with a light towel and let rise in a warm place for 1 hour, until bread roughly doubles in size. Some time midway, preheat oven to 400F. Remove the towel and bake until top is golden, about 30 minutes.

Does that mean you don't want any strawberry jam when I finally retreat far enough from death's door to make it?
