The other week after work we all went out to a local farm to pick strawberries. We had a blast, the kids loved finding the plump read strawberries that asking to be picked. It is surprising haw fast we were able to collect 3 gallons worth with their help. We plan on eating some fresh, making strawberry jam, and then freezing the rest. Last year the strawberry jam Julia preserved allowed us to go the whole year without having to purchase any jam or jelly, it was great knowing that our whole year supply was homemade!
