Jamming with Strawberries

Today we received a wonderful blessing from our neighbors up the road.  They are two sisters who had a plethora of strawberries to share.  We walked down and picked buckets upon buckets of the sweet red morsels.  The kids and I sat down to munch and hull the berries. 

I ended up whipping up some of my hubby's favorite jam-  strawberry!  I put up 11 pints and have one resting in the fridge.  I also plan on slicing and freezing some for this winter and tomorrow-  we will feast on strawberry pie.  Mmmmmmm

So, this post isn't grand or miraculous, but I wish you could smell the sweet scent of warm jam bubbling on the stove. 

It's the little things in life that bubble over and make my day!

Our strawberry season is very late here! Hoping to pick and make jam in the next week or so. Your photos got me very excited!
