We live less than a mile from a local strawberry patch where you can pick your own strawberries.  This time of the year we love picking, eating and making all kinds of strawberry good things to eat.  The first week the strawberries were ready, we had pies (my favorite) and strawberry shortcake.  This week was time to make strawberry freezer jam.

My good friend J and I spent the day together making our jam and had a great time.    Although we would occasionally get caught up in talking and forget how many cups of sugar we had poured, we did pretty well.  In the end, between us,  we had 34 jars of beautiful red strawberry jam!!!  Mmmmm……. good.
