What I did not tell you was that Seth and I WAY overestimated how many strawberries we'd need and therefore ended up with about 27 jars of strawberry jam.
My freezer was full and we would be consuming it for a long time to come. I knew it would be years before we had to restock.
This time we had two little girls in tow and they were d-o-n-e after approximately 5 minutes of picking and therefore we ended up with about 9 jars of strawberry jam. Much more manageable.
