I have no time to can these days. With a busy life, new baby, and just a general sense of crazy that surrounds my life I am a little short on time. However when I saw these amazing strawberries on sale I had to grab them up. Of course I had high hopes of turning them into a fabulous batch of jelly for my family to enjoy, then like a brick to the head reality set in and I realized I had no time to do so.
Since I had already purchased the berries (where was that reality reminder in the produce isle) I was simply going to have to find a way to save them for later.
I am only making Jam so they don’t have to hold their shape or anything so I did a basic water freeze to save for a later date. I usually pack my frozen fruit in juice for eating a baking but I am turning these into jam so I didn’t want any extra sugar to start the process of the berry’s letting their natural juices out in defrost. I wanted to save that for later.
So all you have to do is simply wash, chop, add a bit of h2o and freeze flat in a freezer zip lock.
Ok so there are a few pics that are not related above! They include our beautiful son sharing the best thing to do with the left overs! And my favorite apron because it rocks!
