The periodic pop I hear tells me another jar of Mara des Bois strawberry (picked today), blackberry, and lemon preserves is sealed and ready to be stored for gifts or for our own use long after strawberry season is over.
And for dessert? Sunday's glut of waffles with double Devon cream, and the warm leftovers from tonight's jam-making.
My adorable assistant and I have been picking a bowlful every day for about 2 weeks now. From the first batch: blackberry, raspberry, strawberry.
Five cups of crushed berries yield about 10 small jars of preserves.
Are you growing strawberries? What are you doing with your harvest? Don't grow strawberries? WHY??!!! Oooooh! Just heard another pop!
