I've been anxiously awaiting the start of the strawberry-picking season. So the fact that I have a bad case of bronchitis right now didn't stop me from hitting the strawberry fields last Saturday;) The truth is, I couldn't have done it without my husbands help. One hour out in the field and I felt like I had run a marathon. Anyway, with a lot of help from my family (and a lot of snacking on the strawberries along the way by said helpers) I managed to get a good start on my jam-making for the year.
Part of our yield from the first trip to the fields. They have quite a plentiful harvest this year.
My absolute favorite Summer dessert. This recipe is a favorite.
My first 4 batches of strawberry jam. Approx 20 cups worth.
My own little "strawberry freckle-face." She never gets tired of them. But then, neither do I :)
