On Strawberries, Strawberry Jam, and [SO MANY] Strawberries.

It's strawberry season in Oregon, and there was much rejoicing.

I joined some other cool people on an expedition to the strawberry patches on Monday. Together we picked dozens of buckets of strawberries. Dozens.

For hours on Tuesday morning I washed, hulled, froze, blended, and ate strawberries, because they were OH SO RIPE, and I didn't want to lose a single strawberry.

I used this recipe to make freezer jam using my kitchen aid (my seminary graduation present).

And for dessert on date night: Strawberry Short-tinis.

Do you pick berries or fruit where you live? Do you make anything with them, freeze them, or just gobble them all up while they're fresh?
