Adventures in Strawberry Picking

Without a doubt, strawberry picking is one of my favorite Springtime activities. After our short and sweet visit to Goldsberry this weekend for mothers and grandmother's day fun, we have a ton of ruby red and beautiful berries in our fridge :) I'd like to do something creative with them before I snack them all away(very likely)...I think I see some strawberry shortcakes in the not so distant future. And while it's on my "to learn eventually, when I have time/burst of motivation/supervision" list, I'd love dabble in the art of jam making one day.

The rest of our weekend was pretty busy as well, with the better half of Sunday spent assembling the exciting new addition to the patio-our Chris' very first Grill. Pictures to come soon-no doubt much hamburger flipping and masculine apron searching in the near future :) Anyways, on with the busy month of May!

I also see that Piper went with you all for Strawberry picking too!

Have fun making whatever out of Strawberry!

Looks like you had a great time picking strawberries, Rebecca!! You should definitely try making freezer jam - get the "No Cook Freezer Jam" by Ball. It's super easy and very rewarding. :)

See you later!

I agree with Shayna! the Freezer Jam is the bomb! I usually do both, but this year I think I will do more freezer jam than I did last year. It tastes more like fresh strawberries. I pulled my last one out of the freezer this morning for my bagel!
