canning strawberries

I think I mentioned in my last post that I was going strawberry picking; well I did. Dave and I picked three trays full of strawberries and they were beautiful. I made strawberry lemon/orange marmalade, strawberry kiwifruit with ginger jam, strawberry preserves, strawberry lemon marmalade, and strawberry jam. Altogether it came to 37 jars of homemade goodness.

I have one batch left to make – I am fermenting some strawberry vinegar that should be done today. I also froze about 30 pints of berries to mix with the raspberries and blueberries when they’re ready. Till next time craft on!
