I had to buy store jam last week.
This is the first time I’ve had to do this since last summer, and it made me sad.
We spent the sunny weekend at our good friends’ house and one of the bonus benefits was that they desperately needed someone to clear out their strawberry patch… we forced ourselves to help.
And, you all know what fresh-picked strawberries are good for… jam!
So check out last year’s simple recipe. All it takes is some strawberries, a lot of sugar (which I choose to be in denial about), and quite a few dirty dishes – but it is so worth it.
Since we were on the road, I didn’t do a darn bit of cooking… but we did have some fun.
So I’ll leave you with some happy summer thoughts, photography-wise.
