My friends and I went strawberry picking last weekend. Though let's be honest: I bugged them to go strawberry picking with me until they relented.
A group effort led to strawberry shortcakes with vanilla bean whipped cream, though my mission of picking pounds and pounds of strawberries was to make preserves. After years of failed attempts, I am determined to get into canning this year, time be damned.
(I do hate American measurements though - the recipe I used said it made four half-pint jars, which I assumed meant four 500 ml jars. As you can see in my photographic evidence, I was very wrong. I can't believe all my efforts only led to two barely-full jars of preserves.)
