it's a tradition that we go strawberry picking on Memorial Day. well, maybe "tradition" is a little strong a word, but this is our 3rd year in a row. we go to Gizdich Ranch with friends from our different worlds--church, school, work & family.
we picked 13lbs of strawberries and ate lots more--see the juice dripping off alex's chin!
i made freezer jam with the strawberries--one batch is low sugar so i wonder how that will turn out. freezer jam is the easiest thing to make and the strawberry flavor really shines through.
i also cut up a few cups of strawberries and froze them--they'll be good for smoothies--yum. a few pints went to our neighbors and there's a bowl of too-ripe strawberries in the fridge. i'm done for the year! until next Memorial Day...
