strawberry picking and homemade jam
This past weekend, we spent our Saturday morning at Hilger's picking strawberries. We had a wonderful time, and came home with 5 quarts of beautiful berries. After eating quite a few (both at the farm and at home) we had enough left over to make strawberry jam. This was my first attempt at homemade jam, but not my last. $10 worth of strawberries and a few simple ingredients yielded 6 half-pint jars of jam, and a fun new family tradition.
