Thanks to some inspiration from Dana,  I finally broke down and made our first homemade jam for the season.  First time for freezer jam.

Yes, I am a little slow when it comes to breaking out of the norm and trying something new.

Freezer jam is now my new best friend as far as jam is concerned.  Who knew we could be up to our ears in all this yummy jam without boiling, sealing and everything else.

A quick trip to the store to load up on strawberries, pectin, these nifty little plastic jars and we were set for making our own concoctions with juicy, sweet strawberries.

A few jars of plain strawberry and a few jars of strawberry rhubarb and we may be set for a couple of months.  I don't see it lasting longer than that around here.

Especially when this has become the breakfast of choice around here now.
