Today is pick strawberries day. We are off to pick 18 quarts of strawberries to make our strawberry jam. It’s the only jam my son has known and will eat so I like to have 18 jars…12 for us and 6 as gifts throughout the year. We will also freeze 8 gallon bags by flash freezing so you can pull out a few or a whole bag as flash freezing keeps them from clumping together in the freezer!!
FLASH FREEZING: wash and cut the hulls (leafy things) off. Pat dry on a paper towel. Lay on a cookie sheet and place in the freezer for 30 minutes. Remove and place in gallon freezer bags and store for up to a year (you can go longer if you want to).
FLASH FREEZING can be used on peppers, cherries, blueberries and any other fruit/veggie including tomatoes!!
Enjoy your day!!
