The other day I got a call from my friend Sarah (or as my husband likes to call her, my organic food drug dealer) got a great deal on strawberries which I was able to get my hands on at a whole sale price. How could I resist?
Two flats later (and some very cramped stained fingers) I was up to my eyeballs in washed and hulled strawberries. The next question is what am I going to do next?
So far I have made 15 jars of classic strawberry jam, 7 jars strawberry rhubarb jam and a very very messy kitchen.
My poor stove!!
but it is completely worth it!
I broke the strawberries up into 3lb ziplock bags. I have about 3 more packages to go. I have a few experiments to try out this weekend…Don’t worry, I’ll post my results.
