Strawberry Picking

23 Jun

I took the kids strawberry picking last week {and again this week, but who’s counting}.


Silas is a natural born berry-picker. He works hard, finds great berries, and doesn’t mind being hot.


Sydney, on the other hand isn’t a fan of the actual berry picking process, but she is loving the berry eating process.


I am lucky that my kids humor me and keep coming out to the berry fields with me.


Last week we made Strawberry Jam with some of the berries we picked. Let me just say, the jam is AMAZING. Bright red, flavorful and delicious.

If you are on the fence about making jam, then DO IT.  Its great.




Want to know what is great with strawberry jam? Homemade peanut butter, check out our post on making your own!

{Side commercial for making your own Peanut Butter: It is easier than you can imagine. It tastes 1 million times better than the stuff from the store, AND you can make it with simply 3 ingredients: peanuts, oil and salt.  End Commercial}.


Hope you are enjoying some summer berries as well.

I would love to see what you are making with your berries this summer!

    Strawberries are the best – warm and sweet picked right from the plant. Yummmm. And your jam looks fantastic.

    Seeing these photos of the kids eating the berries makes me want to go picking. Needs to stop raining here, though.

    Will you send me the photos of you & Sydney and you & Silas?
    All the photos are great.
