strawberry pickin

Sooo... Monday I got the urge to go strawberry pickin and the kids were up to it of course, anything to get out of doing schoolwork.. so we grabbed some containers and headed for Brookdale farm. The strawberries were plentiful and oh so good!

Savannah took this picture of herself picking a strawberry.

Brandon and Savannah with their bounty.

This was the first time the kids had been and they had a great time!

When we got home Savannah and I tried our hand at making Strawberry Jam....
First you need to puree your strawberries.. here I have 4 cups of pureed strawberries...
Add in your sugar and lemon juice...

Don't forget to stir it so it doesn't burn in the bottom of the pan, it has to reach 220 degrees..

It turned out sooooo yummy... we had some tonight on biscuits..

What a great day!!!!!
