Jam-ing away the night
Yes, it is that time of year again! This year I was determined not to miss out on the short window to get fresh strawberries at the farm and make jam. Only two batches made so far, though with a toddler that is quite a feat! This one was just strawberry and we also made a strawberry-rhubarb batch. This next weekend I plan on getting more berries to freeze so we can make some strawberry-combo jams later on this summer. I was thinking strawberry-blueberry or strawberry-appricot sounded yummy. My husband thinks that 2 batches of jam are a lot... about 17 jars total... I think he will be surprised how fast those get eaten.
