Nothing says June like a glut of strawberries.
Spent a sunny afternoon at Linvilla Orchards picking large quantities of red, ripe strawberries. As you can see, they were very ripe. They needed to be eaten, baked into a pie, and made into strawberry jam as soon as possible. I missed the opportunity to make strawberry yogurt popsicle with this batch but there is always next weekend.
What bucolic fun for city folk. Although, I would not mind my strawberry patch on an allotment or small farm.
Using Food In Jars strawberry vanilla jam recipe, I preserved 5 pint sized jars of strawberry vanilla goodness. This jam is fabulous right out of the jar (I speak from experience) or paired with homemade honey vanilla ice cream. Now that the refrigerator has been replaced, I plan on making homemade ice cream this summer, fall and winter.
Anyone else jamming this summer? Let me know in the comment section.
