For The Love Of Strawberries

I guess this is turning into a "Blog Anonymous" for me. I have a new addiction, yep, you got it strawberries! It's like I am trying to make as much strawberry jam as I can before my favorite stand closes. I only have a few more weeks before of the extreme heat kills off my berries! I think I have made about 7 batches of freezer jam. Each batch makes at least 5-8oz. containers. Yes, I know, I'm crazy! Sad thing is I'll probably make another batch or two before the season is done!

I haven't even made any yet, so let me know where your stand is. I'm gearing up for apricot and my grandma's tree should be ready around the 5th of June. I should do some strawberry, though; I do love a good canning session. I'm still a little shy about tons of freezer jam as our refrigerator died last fall (I lost a lot of jam and fruit).

There's nothing better than strawberry freezer jam. I made a ton last summer and we've just finished off the last of it. I'm waiting to get some more berries later in the summer to make a bunch more.

Our fave stawberry stand out here in the southwest isn't open this year. I was so sad. Where is the one you go to? I need to dip some in chocolate for a bridal shower I'm throwing this weekend.

The stand is on Snow Road. Just take Jewetta all the way to Snow. Turn left. It's a little stand on your right. The strawberries are picked daily so they will not keep for more than a couple of days. Good Luck!

That is so far away from ME! But I might just have to spend the $10 in gas to get them. Fresh picked are the only way to go.

ps. Sara has just posted a picture of "girls camp" days. I plan on doing a future post just about that subject. So, get out your scrapbooks if you can contribute anything to that! kthanksbye.
