Some hobbits may have a passion for mushrooms but mine is for strawberries. This spring I discovered the local farmer's market. What a fun place to go to! This week's best find was strawberries. I kept out 2 quarts for eating with scones tomorrow morning, 1 quart to make my mom's strawberry rhubarb pie, I ate quite a few (pints) and washed and froze the rest for juicing for jelly come fall. Strawberry jam reminds me of my grandma, she had a lovely patch of strawberries and made *the* best jam (with the wax on top!). I can still taste it. The children prefer jelly but I'm all about jam! Maybe that's why my maiden name initials were JAM!
