The best tasting strawberries EVER!!!!!Rain, Rain, Go away!
Seriously, all it has done this whole weekend is RAIN! I'm so sick and tired of the endless rain.
Well, this holiday weekend was basically ruined due to the pouring down rain.
I ended up picking strawberries this morning with my wonderful sister in law Serena.
As soon as we pulled up to the strawberry farm it started to rain. I wasn't about to turn around and go home. I wanted my strawberries. We ended up picking in the rain. We were both completely soaked from head to toe. I felt like a wet dog. Yuck!
We ended up picking one flat each. They ended up offering us already picked flats of strawberries for only $2 more. I couldn't turn down a good deal and came home with three flats. In hindsight, I should of only brought home two flats. I still have four pints sitting on the counter. Any ideas?
Leroy made all of the cooked jelly and I made all of the freezer jam. All day long, we worked on making Jelly and Jam. I wouldn't recommend trying to make Jelly in one day.
Landon and Logan worked hard on removing the tops but managed to take most of the top halve of the strawberries off.
We ended up with 37 pints of Jelly and 20 containers of Freezer Jam.
So, what do you prefer? Freezer Jam or Homemade cooked Jelly?
Landon and Leroy both hate Freezer Jam.
Logan and I aren't picky and we like both.
