There was no quilting yesterday. The morning was spent picking these lovelies:
It’s hard to stop picking once you start and we ended up with a couple of almost full flats.
Of course the first way to sample them is to just eat them as is. These are much smaller than the supermarket variety of strawberries, but they pack so much more flavour that they don’t need any cream or sugar to help them. However, there were way too many to eat them all before they went bad. As it was, they were softening just sitting on the kitchen counter.
What to do? Make jam!
By the time I ran out of jars at the end of the fourth batch I was ready to be done. Another 10 cups of berries went into the freezer.
Breakfast this morning had to feature the jam. Yum! Store bought doesn’t come close to this!
Yummy! (Maybe I WILL stop at the little vendor up the road with a sign telling me he has strawberries from my own state...)ReplyDelete
Yummy! Wish I had a jar of that jam! ---"Love"ReplyDelete
