It’s not strawberry season here in Iowa, but Hubby and I ended up making TWO batches of Strawberry Jam last night. One of the guys that he works worth knew of someone who is a trucker. The trucker had a deliver to the south and brought back a whole bunch of strawberries and was selling them.
I took two flats worth of strawberries….we got all this plus three more jars. I just put those three jars straight in the refrigerator to divvy out to the kids when they come home. They will just get eaten that fast.
This morning for breakfast I had to try it out…YUM.
I popped an English muffin in the toaster to try the jam and then as it was toasting thought, “Oh, I’ll take a picture of the jam on the muffin too.” Well the muffin pops up, I spread it with jam and I ate it, forgetting to take the picture.
So I had to pop another in the toaster..just to get a picture….HA! No I ate it too.
We froze some of the strawberries and strawberry shakes too. Today I think the last of them are going in a pie. It was a real treat to have good strawberries so early in the season.
