I went strawberry picking while I was in Jax last time with a friend of mine who shall remain nameless (that's you, Connie! haha) We had a great time canning our jam for the first time (she did most of the work). She's my partner in crime when it comes to cooking and things we can do frugally. We figured out a way to use the frothy foam that you are supposed to skim off the top of the jam you are making - we just let it cool, stirred it up and told ourselves it was strawberry honey! It will be great over pancakes. It's easier than I thought to can jam, and now I want to expand into other items. When I go back, I'll probably go blueberry picking and do the same thing.
