strawberry fields

Just another romp at a picking farm. This time though Zach actually will eat the fruits of our labors happily, unlike the great apple fiasco.

It was a beautiful, cool, sunny day to pick and pick and eat and pick and eat some more.

The winning recipe for the cooking impaired was this raw strawberry chia seed jam I found via Pinterest. You just can't mess this up and it is SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOooooooooo good. Like, whoops I just spooned the whole jar into my mouth while watching the Daily Show good. You canning divas can do your thing to make this stuff shelf stable for the long haul. If you're like me and just jar it up, make sure you keep it refrigerated. Spoon it onto bread, ice cream, oatmeal, yogurt, or... just spoon it in your mouth and feel the love. We followed this recipe but sweetened with maple syrup rather than stevia.
