On this day



which incidentally is five days into the first heatwave of this summer, you will find me in my kitchen. I will be stirring away in front of my stove, upping the temperature inside the house, making our first batch of strawberry jam. And during the cold winter months I will remember it every morning I put the jam on our toast. And I will be so thankful I did.

  4. oh my, we're in a heat wave as well.
    We did not get enough strawberries for jam, we only ended up with 7 pints. But we have 4 quarts frozen too. . .and the wild black raspberries are nearly ripe!
