The strawberries are still coming on strong in our garden.
We can’t keep up with eating them all so I convinced
Hubby to help me get them all washed and
into a pot for making strawberry jam.
I was so grateful he was willing to help, for
some reason that pile of strawberries just looked like a bigger
task than I was up for.
It went much faster with two of us cleaning berries.
Into the dutch oven the berries went and I proceeded to
mash them with my hand held potato smasher.
It feels very rewarding to do things by hand, I guess
I could have got out the electric puree tool, but doing it the old
fashioned way felt right to me.
Now onto the stove with the berries along with a couple cups of sugar.
As the batch was boiling I noticed hubby get out the bread and the
Next thing I knew he was also grabbing a serving of freshly
made jam from the pot.
I guess he just couldn’t resist….
Looks yummy right?
This is the second batch of jam we have canned this year.
Next the Raspberries will be ready.
