Strawberries!!!! Who's got Strawberries!!!!!

Hubby is so spoiled!!   He loves strawberry jam but he never has to eat commercially prepared jam.  That would be because I make it for him.  And what does he contribute to this endeavor?   Well, he did order the strawberries and stopped with me to pick them up.  I'll be danged if I'm going to pick them, as well as do every other little thing required to make the jam for him!   Oh, and he went to play golf the day I slaved in the kitchen over his jam.  
Two flats of strawberries ready to make jam

Lovely local strawberries 
First batch of clean jars 
And here's the final result.  Twenty pints and nineteen half pints of fine strawberry jam.  That ought to keep him happy for a while.  

Y'all take care.

  1. I love making homemade Jam, but my in-laws do too, and they send me a box full so I have slowed down a bit. Yours looks yummy! I am your newest follower! oxox, Diane
