Saturday morning was spent picking strawberries. I really must remember to do the math better. 9 people picking strawberries means you rapidly end up with more than you thought you would get. Not that we won't use them all but we really didn't intend to buy 45 lbs of strawberries. The berries were mostly on the smaller side this year so by the time all of the containers were full, we'd picked a lot.
The next few days will be spent making jam, strawberry pancake syrup (yum, the no corn syrup kind), strawberry muffins, strawberry shortcake, chocolate covered strawberries and putting quite a few in the freezer for later this year. No, we will not buy any strawberries from the store for the rest of the year.
