Strawberry Fields (Forever, I hope)

We woke up early and headed out to Twin Oaks Family Fun Farm to pick a few pounds of fresh strawberries to make both quick and easy jam as well as to preserve for future deserts when the season is long gone.

@Hank Will - the video was my pleasure. I am hoping to make another one today as I am going to attempt fresh, homemade bread today...for the FIRST TIME! If nothing else it will be a comic delight! hahahaha

Drew -- I am definitely going to try that with my partner in culinary crime when the berries come in. We just got a new chest freezer so we can fill it with all kinds of excellent eats. Cool on the video too and congrats for being the first to use the new blogging system's video widget ... Thanks, Hank

@Dave - I try, I try. Actually I have just had a lot of material going out lately and I can't think of a better place to share it than on GRIT. Yeah, the jam is super easy. Even I can do it! hahahahah. U-Pick places are so much fun and the people are generally some of the best around. Keep watching for yet another kind of drew!
