Strawberry Pickin'

Oh, how I love summer and fresh fruit and especially strawberries. I was able to go to Kira's field trip to pick strawberries and had a blast. She also got to jump on the jump castles and has a ton of fun with her friends on that too! Of course, it was another day that I went and had to work the night before but it was so much fun and I left before lunch so it was an early, easy field trip :) We picked a lot of strawberries and I decided it would be a blast to try and make homemade strawberry jam! It was my first time ever and it turned out wonderful!!! I made 9 pints of it and we are down to maybe 4 or 5 left and that was a month ago :) It is definitely something I will do again and try other things as well. It felt good to make my family something that wasn't processed or had a bunch of other junk added to it! It was strawberries, a little sure-gel, and sugar! Such a yummy treat for the summer! Oh, did I mention I love summer?!
