The strawberry posts continue! We had a lot of strawberries to work with this year, and I was happy to try a few new recipes in the process. We made strawberry sorbet and strawberry banana popsicles with the strawberries we didn’t use for canning (or just plain good eating.
This year, we continued our summer tradition by picking two flats of strawberries. We used most of the strawberries for making jam (see my past post on canning for ideas of your own but saved the rest to make popsicles and sorbet.
(photo credit: Jesse Egan) It is once again canning season, and I’m so happy to see it come around again! This year, our plans include canning strawberries, peaches, cherries, and apples, with the possibility of adding blueberries into the mix.

For the past couple months, we’ve been getting deliveries from Brewers Organics, an amazing local service in Milwaukee that delivers fresh organic produce and other goods to your door as frequently as once per week.
