Strawberry Jam!

OK, our garden may be pitiful right now, but someone is growing goodies!  All of the strawberry farms opened early here in Virginia and we spent a chilly, windy morning picking 4 big buckets and one CJ sized bucket of beautiful strawberries.
Yes, I know this is just two, I think the others were being washed...or eaten!

Then we came home, ate a bunch, and then got busy canning.  Well, the oldest canned, I cleaned and cut strawberries - and took pictures.

We figured out that by canning 16 pint sized jars that they cost us about $2.23  per jar.  Maybe not a big savings, but I know what is in it, the kids love it, and it makes me feel like Ma Ingles, sort of! ;)

Because Lego Boy, my new nickname for the 10 year old, loves kiwi, his awesome big sister made mostly kiwi-strawberry jam.  It is wonderful on homemade bread which, yes, she makes too.  (Bet you are wondering what I am going to do when she goes to college.  Yep, me too!)

Wish you could pop in and join us for breakfast!

Coming Wednesday- results from our Once a Month Shopping!
