Every year Brent has gone to pick strawberries to makes his own jam. This year the tradition has changed, I got to be involved. We had planned to pick last Saturday, if you remember last Saturday it poured. We made our way out to the farm in Abbotsford and decided that it was probably best just to buy a flat instead.
I had no idea how much sugar was involved in making jam. 4 cups to be exact, 4 cups for every 1-3/4 cups of mashed strawberries. I was pretty surprised. Slightly overwhelmed.
