Well life took over but finally here to share more in the 30 Days of Summer posts. I had started one earlier in the week related to fun summer treats - which I will share in the future. But today I wanted to share about berries. Strawberries in particular for this post....but berries are a true favorite for me in general this time of year. I love that they come in season along with many other wonderful summer fruits.
My grandparents had a beautiful home on a lake with acres of land when I was growing up. My Grandma lived there for many years after my Grandpa died too. And they always had tons of raspberry bushes. I have such wonderful memories of picking raspberries every summer when I was a kid. And my Gram always made homemade jam and desserts with them. I would say they are my favorite berry for that reason. But in 2nd place are strawberries. The truly wonderful wild ones or from a farm where you can pick them- where they are smaller and nothing like the ones from the grocery store. They are sweet as candy and make the best jam and desserts too!
I didn't hand pick these, but picked them up from a farm that brought bushels of them to the city
So what did do with these beauties? Well I had to make some easy refrigerator jam and a pie of course! ;)
That night I had made hashbrown crust breakfast pizza and so we of course had some toast with homemade jam to go along with it! I shared the recipes for all of these dishes on my instagram and I'll share them all here:
Hope you enjoy!! I'm sharing this Jean of Sonotorganized blog and Rebecca of Rebecca's Hearth and Home blog for
