Strawberry Season

We arrived home just in time to catch the end of strawberry season. When we arrived we were told that it had been a busy season and we'd need to be exuberant for u-pick.   
Megan dove right into the berries.  Well, that is until she found a stink bug in her box! We had quite a chuckle from her reaction. 
There is nothing quite like local, fresh strawberries.  
They were eaten plain and sugared over angel food cake. 
Of course, I had to make jam. 
We have already had a sample and it's delicious!
If you are new to home canning or want to give it a try for the first time I recommend that you start with strawberry jam.  It's super easy! We prefer the cooked method.  I follow the direction that are provided in the Sure Jell package.  I know that many like the freezer version.  So roll your sleeves up, put on an apron and get in the kitchen!  No matter which version you choose I know you won't be disappointed.

May your day be filled with joy in the journey!


  1. The perfect summer pastime. I love berry picking - hate stink bugs though!! All of your strawberry creations look awesome!

  2. One of my favorite times of the year!
    Few things compare to fresh strawberries.
    Beautiful creations, my friend!

  3. Oh yum! Great pic's of your harvest!

  4. Oh my goodness those strawberries look delicious as does the shortcake and jam that you made from them. I need to check the u=pick places up north of us to see what they have ripe now. I will not get enough strawberries off my plants this year to make jam with and that is Jeff's all time favorite.

  5. Yummy, Our strawberries are finish in our area. My little beds did pretty good this year. I have one bed that is older and it will be replaced with new strawberries plants soon. Enjoy!!

  6. I was just talking to someone the other day who likes to can and she said that strawberry jam is really easy to make. I'll have to try it some time!

  7. Fresh Strawberries ... YUM!YUM! They look delicious. Homespun Hugs ♥ Teri
