Sweet Strawberries, Great Jam
It is February and that means it is strawberry season in Florida. That is one of the things I really miss about living there. The Strawberry Festival is this month in Plant City and if you can ever go...do, you won't regret it.
Since I don't live there any more I was very happy to see these jewels at the local grocery when I went there last night. I know it goes against my Eat Local goals but I can't resist them. Florida strawberries are SWEET! Plus I justify it in my head that it's only Florida, not Mexico, China, Honduras...etc.
I now have 6 jars of Strawberry Jam to get me through until Strawberry season here in Illinois in May.
