We went strawberry picking at a nearby ‘pick-your-own’ farm, and, um, came home with not just one gallon of strawberries, but TWO. So now I’m trying to come up with ways to eat all these strawberries before they go bad!! (I don’t have canning equipment, or else I’d make some jam!)
Here’s what I did with some of them this morning:
(I love chocolate covered strawberries!)
And I’m baking two loaves of strawberry bread as we speak. I’ll let you know how it turns out and share the recipe if we end up liking it.
We plan on making strawberry popsicles today as well. Any other ideas???
I hope all you mothers out there have a lovely Mother’s Day today. My boys brought me breakfast in bed this morning, and my oldest brought me a ‘bouquet’ a little while ago:
Enjoy your day!

Heather! Make freezer jam! You will love it. It tastes like fresh strawberries, not like canned at all, and it is very easy. Let me know if you don’t find a recipe on line!
Thanks, Aunt Claudia! I had hubby pick up some pectin at the grocery store just now and I’m going to give that a try!
You can just wash/slice/sugar them and freeze, also. Perfect for shortcake or strawberry cobbler later in the year!
