I made Strawberry, blackberry, and raspberry jams the other day. I had to do something with the berries sitting on my counter before they started to rot. With this heat we're having, fruit and vegetables tend to go bad as soon as I buy them from the farmer's market. It's a shame, really. So the solution is to freeze them or can them! I'm trying to build up a nice pantry for the winter and these are a good addition for sure.
