Guess what's going down around here today?!!
My Baby Girl gave me a flat and a half of
fresh local grown strawberries
Early Mother's Day gift! Beautiful!
I'm making Strawberry Jam!
Why not something more exotic?
Why? When I can buy it so cheap at the grocer?
Why? When it's labor intensive?
They didn't cost me anything!
They are grown the next county over!
I know what's in the jam!
It's MY time and MY labor!
I'm gonna freeze a gallon bag full of strawberries
for smoothies and hope to get at least a dozen half pints of jam!
I may even make some Strawberry Champagne Jelly!
Now, that would be a challenge since my few attempts
at jelly turned out to be syrup!
I may need to get more strawberries!!
Later! I've got recipes to search for!
I ♥ canning!
Update! Fourteen half pints of Strawberry Jam from the flats!!
Brought home three more flats from the farmer's market yesterday!
And!! Hubs brought home three baskets of Chilton County Peaches!
Gonna be a busy week in the kitchen!
