Fresh Strawberry Jam Recipe
October 24, 2012
Last week I took Punky and Cuddles to visit a Berry Farm. The farm is located a short distance from us. I chose it as it is an organic (non certified) farm that has been established for some time and is well know for it’s produce and related products. The farm is called Summer Sensations and is located in Teesdale (near Geelong, Victoria).
Strawberries are currently in season at the farm. Summer Sensations also grow blackberries, raspberries, silvanberries and youngberries. We will be heading back for all of those when they come into season!
We had a great time!
I loved the drive to the farm as it is in an area that I had not yet explored. I love looking at beautiful old farm buildings and churches. I could have spent the day stopping by the side of the road taking pictures if I didn’t have two impatient boys in the car and a prep orientation session later in the day!
I can not begin to describe the smell of the strawberries that we picked. The owner said she thinks they smelt like toffee apple. I am not sure but they smelt divine, and tasted even better.
We filled up about half of our strawberry punnet when my boys suddenly realised that there was no good reason for not taste testing. I had to then speed up the picking and stop taking photos to get us out of there before they ate their weight in un-paid for berries! I did mention at the store that we should pay extra on top of the picked weight for taste testing…
This is what we made with our glorious collection of berries.
