Preserving Recipes – Strawberries


Schools out and strawberries are in.  I had planned on finishing up a cupcake post but it is late and I have to get into the kitchen to cook up some jam.  I am making two kinds: Traditional with reduced sugar and French-style from Mes Confitures.

If you are greater Portland flavorista, you can find Maxwell’s Farm Strawberries at Smaha’s Legion Square Market and Broadturn Farm has organic pick-your-own strawberries available now.

I LOVE Maine strawberries but the last few seasons were water logged, resulting in less than stellar berries.  If the ones I picked up today are any indication, strawberries are going to be delicious this year.

For more ideas preserving this year’s strawberry harvest, take a peek at Aimee’s post over at Simple Bites.  I am especially curious about freezing whole berries in a simple syrup and am planning on giving it a try.

Off to the kitchen for some crazy midnight canning.
