We're swamped with strawberries this year. I think we have enough jam to last for two years, and our neighbors are probably also getting sick of them!

I might have to, Nat! I've got your address, but would Canadian customs allow it? We've already got around 30 jars, and are still picking strawberries (18 kilos on Sunday, and 20 yesterday; the freezer is full of strawberries). I'm allergic to them, so there's no way DH's going to get through them all.

Actually, I've told him (since he made the jam) that whatever is in the brand new jars he had to buy should go to the cat home, for their annual raffle. Now he's thinking about making gooseberry jam, too, as we're going to have too many of them.

It'll probably be a really good year for grapes, too.

I'm sooooooooooo jealous. No strawberries grown in Las Vegas. If they could grow, they would immediately turn to jam from the heat

Aha, so they are ripening!

We have a bumper crop this year, because May was much warmer and sunnier than usual. Strawberry jam is dead easy to make (hubby does it, because I can't eat it; I caved in and ate a bowl of strawberries and vanilla ice cream, and ended up on cortisone for a week). He just cuts the green part off, slices the big strawberries in half, and layers them with "jam sugar" or "gelling sugar", 1:1, in a big pot, and lets the pot sit for 3 or 4 hours. Then he brings the mix to a boil, lets it simmer for 4 minutes, and voila. He tried using less jam sugar this year in the first pot, and ended up with "strawberry soup", now "residing" in our freezer.
