A few weeks ago (already!) the girls and I went strawberry picking at Jaquith Strawberry Farm. It was a lot of fun and yummy! Once we got the berries home we made jam and strawberry pie. There is something so fulfilling about preparing foods from starch.
Strawberry Jam Recipe

7 cups sugar
1 box Sure-Jell
Prepare jars and lids. Boil water in canner or large pot.
To prepare fruit, crush about 4 pt. fully ripe strawberries.
