This recipe appealed to me more than others because it wasn’t fussy and used simple, basic ingredients that most of us have in our pantries, save the fresh strawberries and rhubarb. If you can’t stop at a road stand in Napa county to buy just-picked berries like I can- well, I’m sorry you don’t live in Northern California - but I am sure farmers’ market berries in any part of the country will be phenomenal stand-ins this time of year.
This recipe is easy enough though to tackle mid-week. A lot of the time is takes it just stirring and cooling. With this toffee you can delight colleagues at the office, shower lucky friends with treats or package them in a cute box with ribbon for a homemade holiday gift. So go on now- get out that candy thermometer!
