Today I canned my first strawberries. It was a wonderful success sort of. I was hoping to make a thick strawberry spread but ended up with a syrup. The girls and I did come up with a list of things that it would go well with like homemade ice cream, angel food cake, & homemade cheese cake. The wonderful part for me and what makes it such a huge success is that the jars sealed and the syrup has a great flavor. Luckily too I am pretty sure what I did wrong and it will be easy to fix. The good thing is it did make quite a bit. I guess I should write down what I did just in case it is a big hit. I am really going to have fun this summer playing with different recipes and foods. I can not wait!!!!
