Strawberry Jam

One of the perks of Auckland is the strawberries- sweet and juicy, cheap and in bigger punnets (“chips”) than the South Island. I made strawberry jam today (I think it was the hottest day we’ve had yet- a perfect day to stand over a hot stove!) to give as Christmas gifts. My Grandad Don told me that strawberrys make a nice jam. You know what he’s getting!

 I took a few photos of the process.

I think this last photo is my favourite!

    Hello from New York! Strawberry shortcake is my favorite cake. Strawberries are very tasty.

    Bootiful photography. Just gorgeous.. yes, there are few weird Aucklandisms to get used to.. you’re in “chip” and “bach” and “westie” territory now!

    Yum! The strawberries are not quite ripe here yet. My Mum always gives us a box of jams and pickles and relishes for Christmas… great gift.
