Last Time, I Swear

So, I borrowed a fun idea from Cro's blog.  He had been making jam and pictured a jar of it. The label said "Finest" which I thought was great! So I sat with my fine Sharpie marker (love Sharpies) and looked up synonyms for the word 'best'. Here are the labels for my strawberry jam jars.




Is my jam, in fact, worthy of those labels? Nah, it's just the recipe that comes with the Certo (the thickening agent), but it makes all the slogging worth it!

I am now done blogging about strawberries. The end.

  2. I carry a Sharpie with me at work in my pocket. Need them for writing the date on nitroglycerin patches. This idea is much more fun.

  9. Don't be done with strawberries!!! :) I bought a few pints at the market, they were local and they're so delicious. I need to now figure out how to use them quick. Strawberries with pancakes for brunch maybe, strawberry shortcake for dessert tomorrow and maybe strawberry ice cream... I love the idea of "finest" and "world's best"!! :)

    1. Berries freeze beautifully. Take off he green leaves, wash if necessary, lay them on a wax paper covered cookie sheet and put that in the freezer to allow them to freeze solid, but separately. Then take them off the wax paper and put them in freezer bags. You can use frozen berries for baking, smoothies, even jam.

  10. Sounds great. I still have some from last year. As long as the labels will come off. Nothing worse than the ones you can't scrape off.
