The summer may be drawing to a close, but I am eeking it out with every last bit of seasonal fruit I can find. These beautiful gluten free Rhubarb and Strawberry Crumble slices may be the last I can make with our garden rhubarb before it draws back into hibernation for the winter months.
It will also be the last post that I will share on Gluten Free Alchemist for a while as I shift my focus to some major changes taking place behind the scenes. Having recently been made unexpectedly redundant from my day job after a career of more than 30 years, I have decided to spend more of my newly found ’empty’ time both on the blog and on some other gluten free plans formulating in my now ‘less cluttered’ brain.
I would love to jump straight into full-time blogging and a food-related new career, but despite Gluten Free Alchemist having been around since 2013, I have never seen it as anything other than a hobby blog until now and as a result, it is simply not set up to be anything more ‘commercial’.
Whilst I have no intention of selling my soul to the advertising industry, I at least want to give myself a chance of moving Gluten Free Alchemist towards something that pays at least some of the bills (alongside some freelancing linked to my other, life-long career). With that in mind, I plan to transfer the whole blog over to a new platform in the coming weeks for a fresh new look and more flexibility, which will mean (mainly because I am one of the least techy people I know) putting all my attention into getting my head around the changes needed. I just hope you will all still be here when I come back!
Gluten Free Alchemist as it currently looks, will still be live in the meantime and I will still be baking and developing new recipes in the background whilst I ready the new site… Which (hopefully) means lots of new recipes waiting to be shared when I resurface. I will also continue to post on Instagram and in Facebook with lots of photos of my bakes, makes and finds so that you get a sneak peak of what’s going to be coming up on the blog soon… Make sure you follow me to see what I’ve been up to.
For now though, I give you my Rhubarb and Strawberry Crumble Slice which is not only the most gorgeous colour, but is utterly delicious too. It needs no dressing up with fancy drizzles or sprinkles… It speaks temptingly for itself, promising you a combination of sweet and tart flavours, set against textures which are crisp, crunchy, soft, dry, moist and melty in each and every bite.
Tempted? Why not make it yourself. There is still some beautiful pink rhubarb to be had and although finding some British ones may be more of a challenge, there are always strawberries in the shops ready and waiting. This gluten free Rhubarb and Strawberry Crumble Slice may be the perfect dessert for you to wave a fond farewell to the glorious summer that 2019 has proved to be, before you pull out the winter coats and boots, switch on the heating and snuggle up for Winter. Slather in custard, drizzle with cream or top with ice cream for a little extra decadence.
