In a jam

I've made my first batch of jam this summer and it seems a bit early really being right at the beginning of June, but I had 2 kilo's of strawberries to deal with and they wouldn't wait.

They've done really well down on the allotment this year after we decided to dedicate a whole bed to them. Roy thinks there's at least another good few kilo's to come, in addition to boxes we gave away yesterday.

So I've got nine jars of lovely strawberry jam so far and hopefully by the weekend i'll have another batch, but this time mixed with the little white wild strawberries that also need gathering.

  1. Oh yummy! We only have a few strawberries this year so far and they aren't even red yet!

    What variety of strawberries do you grow?
