Day 9 – 5 cases of strawberries

So yesterday i went to a food distributor that has a program called everybody’s family fruit where the public can go in and buy from them at amazing prices, like 5 cases of 8 – 1 pound containers in each for 20 dollars! that’s 40 pounds for just 20 bucks! I also got 11 pounds of asparagus, 9 pounds of apples, 42 cucumbers and a 10 pound bag of red potatoes! it was a good stop ๐Ÿ™‚ .

But with the 40 pounds of strawberries I shared with our mechanic and a few neighbors, theย  rest I turned into jam (some with honey, some with sugar)(I’ll put a link tot he recipe a did down below) and now i have 11 pints of jam! the rest i’m freezing and some is being made up for kombucha and jun to go with raspberries and 100% pure just cranberry juice, and a smigg of honey or sugar to get the second ferment going for the carbonation but not having it go so long that the flavor it so sour and you can still smell the fruit. i’m doing that because its just more appealing to drink something fruity to me then something that smells so much of alcohol.

Strawberry jam

I’ll be posting pictures of the jams later today along with the tree, tomato, canal watering system, Hope everyone has a great morning and day, Later! ๐Ÿ™‚
