They are showing up everywhere in our county right now. They are big, plump, red and
so sweet! We eat them in so many ways, and we are happy whenever we eat them.
On Saturday afternoon, I discovered my mother in her kitchen, once again making her
beloved freezer strawberry jelly.
Carefully, she cut up each red berry...
...filling the big, white bowl.
She makes it the same way, always! Her boxes of Certo are close by. She chooses to
make the "freezer version" recipe, with the instructions inside the box.
She has been making this jelly for at least 60 some years, and in her eighties, she is
still making it. This is one process in the kitchen, that continues to make her happy,
knowing she can put the filled jars in her freezer, for the upcoming winter. You see,
every morning she has a cinnamon/raisin English muffin, toasted with peanut butter and
her jelly on it. Plus, the hot cups of coffee. She claims that one cannot buy jelly that
tastes as good as this recipe:)
Watching her, inspired me to do the same.
Hence, the jars of jelly now in my freezer. Only difference...I did not look as pretty as she did,
while making my jelly:)
Thanks for stopping by today. You are a blessing to me! I wish I could share a jar of
jelly with you all.
