|Mmmm...fresh farm berries just ripe for action!|
|Hulled berries ready for duty!|
|Berries get mashed with a potato masher before getting combined with sugar...4 cups of sugar in case you like to count stuff like that.|
|E12 likes to make jam and R11 is always willing to help in the kitchen. I have to admit with their help in making the jam, it really cut down my time. We all had a job to do with multiple timers going. Good time!|
|This jam is ready to jar up!|
|We made about 20 half pints of strawberry freezer jam.|
The remainder of this flat and just about all of the second one were sliced and put in ziploc bags into the freezer. Throughout the year, we pull them out to make fruit smoothies and it is sooooo worth the work! If you've never made freezer jam, there's nothing quite like opening a jar of jam in the middle of winter and getting a blast of summer time right out of there! The smell takes you right to the of month June. Amazing!
