Strawberry Time

Do you remember all those overgrown rows of strawberries that I posted a picture of last week.  Well, with the warm sunny weather this week they are pumping out berries like crazy :)

We have been enjoying strawberry shortcake or strawberries and ice cream or strawberry shakes!.... and I still had way more in the frig! LOL

Yesterday I decided to make some sugar free preserves.  I was surprised at how quick and easy it was to do.  Two cups of crushed berries and some pectin... cooked, jarred, processed and in about an hour I had 3 jars made.  I made a second batch last night.

And I still have more quarts of strawberries in the frig and still more to be picked!   I'm thinking that maybe I'll do up a couple of quart sized jars and when I want a strawberry pie all I have to do is make the crust, fill and bake!
