Last year was the first year I'd ever tried canning. When approaching the idea with a friend of mine who's had lots of experience, she suggested freezer jam. I have to admit that I was suspicious, and a little disappointed (just because I was all ready to learn how to "can" in the traditional sense.) But oh my, I was more than pleasantly surprised with the end results!
As we're in transition these next few weeks, I'm not sure I'll have enough time for freezer jam this year. But I am definitely making plans for strawberry shortcake, strawberry-rhubarb pie, chocolate-dipped, and eating lots of them just plain. Do you have any favorite recipes involving strawberries?
