“She wanted only her own strawberry farm, the fragrance of the fields and the cedar trees, and to live simply in this place forever.” – David Guterson,Snow Falling on Cedars
There’s something about standing in the middle of a field of strawberries. The air there is different, heavy with a sweet sugary perfume that can only come from berries warmed by the sun. It’s a simple pleasure to fill a basket with strawberries, picked straight from the vine, by my own hands.
Today I’ll share my recipe for turning some of those juicy berries into sweet, sweet Homemade Strawberry Jam.
By filling little jars with this sticky-sweet crimson, I can savor the taste of summer and the fragrant strawberry fields well into the fall.
