Links: Strawberries, Rhubarb, and Winners

June 1, 2015(updated on October 18, 2023)
Half of yesterday strawberries have become a big batch of low sugar strawberry vanilla jam. #foodinjars #strawberries #localproduce

This last weekend was a good one. On Saturday morning, I wandered my favorite farmers market and turned a flat of berries into batches of strawberry vanilla jam and strawberry butter. Annelies stayed with us on Saturday night and we went out for a unhurried brunch this morning. A few hours after she left, I picked my dear friend Andrea up at the train station. We met the very first day of college and have been close ever since. She lives in Southern California, so we don’t get to see each other often, but whenever we do, it’s as if no time has passed. Now, links!

The winners in last week’s Candy in a Jar giveaway are #33/Alicia, #86/Madeleine, and #104/Sandy. Thanks to all who shared their favorite sweet preserves!

Sharing is caring!

  • Interesting read on the foam. I am a mostly skimmer; I get about 75% of it off and call it good. We made one batch yesterday and have the next batch of strawberries with sugar in the fridge waiting for tomorrow. We also made strawberry syrup and rhubarb syrup for the first time and looking forward to a summer with flavored iced teas and Italian sodas. 🙂

  • Thanks for sharing the chive vinegar! I actually referred to your post about it when I was looking for a recipe 🙂
