Been swimming in strawberries, and it’s been splendid! Freezer Jam, Strawberry Cordial, Strawberry Cream Biscuits (Amazing!!), and 5 pounds in the freezer to be turned into Strawberry Wine at a later date. I’ll be sharing the recipes in a later post. (As well as a recipe for hamburger buns I made last week!)
The delicious, local berries came from Tubbs’ Berry Farm – a lovely Family farm that offers up all sorts of goodies. We get amazing honey from there and got lots of excellent pumpkins last fall. This summer, we’ll be getting our fill of raspberries for more berry fun!
We ended up getting the berries at the same time as a particularly busy week, so I was squeezing in berry time at all hours between all the other obligations. One very wonderful event that occurred, was the wedding of our friends Brett and Jenny. It was a delightful and joyful occasion, and we are so happy for them and their kids!!
I am now into my third trimester, and am starting to feel the homestretch coming on. In some ways I can’t quite believe we’ll have three kids very, very soon! But in other ways (aches, an in-the-way belly, and near heatstroke – our air conditioner hasn’t worked all year) I am very aware!
In what ways have you been savoring strawberry season?
