Yes, It’s Strawberry Season!

It was about a year ago that I wrote a similar post. Well, the end of June is here as is my tradition at this time of preparing the local fresh, juicy, luscious strawberries and placing bags of them in our freezer to be enjoyed all year. Some scrumptious strawberries are used to make Freezer Jam. As of three weeks ago we have no more Freezer Jam to enjoy on English Muffins or as a flavoring for Yummy Yogurt.

Today two batches of Strawberry Freezer Jam were made – one batch at a time. The third batch will be on the agenda tomorrow. The Certo, Sugar and Ziploc containers had already been purchased and were ready to be used.

Meadowbrook Farm in East Longmeadow, MA has delicious, large strawberries. It is definitely local Strawberry Season!

Do you enjoy strawberries? Do you purchase the strawberries grown in your area? They are so good!

JG: I received the "operation aborted" message when I tried to load your blog. So, I had to hit the back button. It solved the issue this time.

The strawberries in my area ripen in late July and August. Nothing beats local grown. In south of Sweden they have been in season since Midsummer. They are available at my supermarket.
