Strawberry Fields Forever

Pin It


No this isn't about Sir Paul (I didn't get to see him in Halifax but I heard he was awesome). This is about my strawberry picking adventure. I wish I had brought my camera with me. Some pics of the field would have been fun. My friend and our girls found a U-pick farm and had to drive waaay up into the woods. Good thing she had a truck because I would not get my car up there! It was the end of the season so the pickins were slim but I still managed to get about 8lbs of strawberries.

Here's what I did with them.


Jam


Cupcakes
These came from the Martha Stewart Cupcake cookbook. These are Strawberry Cupcakes with Swiss Meringue frosting. Yum!

  2. Homemade strawberry jam really is the best. Everytime we go to my husband's grandma's house, I pester her for a jar. And those cupcakes--mouthwatering!!

  6. I really wish I had seen Sir Paul... I love strawberries. We have been enjoying shortcake. Soon we will be moving on to blueberries, though, and that will mean blueberry pie! Yum. :) Actually, blueberry jam too. I think I am a blueberry person. lol

  11. Wow. Those cupcakes look so delicious! We have a You-pick farm near where I live (20 minutes tops) but somehow I've never managed to visit it. Craziness.
