Summer Solstice Strawberries

One week ago we celebrated the Summer Solstice by going strawberry picking.  Mother Nature blessed us with a very hot first day of summer so the girls and I headed out to one of the local berry patches first thing in the morning so that we could get our berry picking done before the heat really set in.  The girls were absolutely amazing berry pickers this year and our hard work paid off in the form of lots of delicious strawberry jam (eleven jam jars worth to be exact)!  While we would have liked to have picked (and canned) more, those eleven jam jars will surely be a lovely reminder of this most gorgeous Summer Solstice day during our cold New England winter months.
