It's Strawberry Picking Time

We went to a local u-pick strawberry patch, Jester Creek Farm, on Monday to go treasure hunting for red, juicy yumminess. My brother and sister-in-law own the patch and this is the first year that they are in business.

Once we brought the strawberries home, we had to decide what to do with them. I was hoping to make jam, but the kiddos had other ideas. . .

and their ideas were pretty yummy too.

I tried a new recipe and it was amazing.
You can find the recipe here
It was truly the best strawberry pie I have ever had.

Oh, and you should check out what Beki is doing with strawberries: S'mores with strawberries??? Oh yes please. Those ginormous "campfire" marshmallows jumped into my cart while grocery shopping so I'm all set for that fantastic idea.

    It's not warm enough here yet, but I have plants a plenty with lots of flowers!! YAY for strawberries!

  2. i love strawberries, and fresh picked are just the best! i little bit jealous here!


  3. Thanks for posting this. You should get a discount! :) As for why your pie was the best strawberry pie you've ever had--it was the berries of course! I'd really like to try this recipe. The ingredients are almost like Mom's, but it leaves out the jello and the method is different. I assume you taste the berries more--and don't get the red dye.


LOVE hearing from you
