baked strawberry cream and rhubarb oatmeal
One of the many things that I enjoy about our changing seasons is coming up with new baked oatmeal recipes.  My strawberry patch came in with a bang this spring and we have harvested at least 20lbs.  It’s now dwindling but I have frozen many pounds and am looking forward to sharing some jam recipes soon!

Strawberries and rhubarb go great together and what can add to that but fresh cream!  A great added bonus about using fresh or whole un-homogenized milk is that the cream naturally separates from the milk.  Whenever I need some fresh cream, all I do is skim some from the top of our milk.  It tastes great, is convenient and saves us $ from having to go out and buy cream that is usually UHT (ultra high temperature).  Since my berries were picked ripe they were sweet so I only had to add about a tablespoon of organic coconut palm sugar.  (I have a post coming up about the wonderful people at Sweet Tree Sustainable Sweeteners) I used pureed strawberries to naturally sweeten and hint with it’s flavor.  The rhubarb shined and a splash of cream, topped with strawberries, made this baked oatmeal a special seasonal breakfast.
