"I have eaten the first fruit of the season, and I am in love."
~ James Wright
I make my strawberry jelly using Certo, the liquid pectin.
I use the quick and easy freezer jelly directions in the box.
I use this recipe because it was the one my mother always used, and because it is quick and simple. Mostly I make it this way because it is what my family requests year after year.
Strawberries can be dressed up and served beautifully like this photo from a page in Victoria Magazine...
...when used as a garnish in serving a refreshing drink.
...or served with other fruits of the season in this attractive way on a page of Country Living Magazine. However and whenever they are served, it brings me happiness. Hoping to have some strawberry shortcake this coming holiday weekend. The roadside stands in my part of the country are brimming full of this sweet, luscious fruit.
We are so blessed!
