My parents have more strawberries in their vedgetable-garden than they know what to do with! To help them avoid the our-freezer-is-full-of-strawberries-scenario, I happily took 3-4 kg off their hands :-)
And really, making jam is not that hard. My biggest problem was finding enough jars to keep it in. But that was worked out pretty fast!
The real problem with my jam-making was -and I am embarassed to say, I didn't even think about it until it was too late- that Charles has the flu. Can you imagine what the sweet sweet smell of strawberries cooking on the stove can do to someone who has an upset stomach and really bad nausea?! Not pretty!
It might just be me and the kids eating this....I don't think Charles will be too eager!
