We’ve eaten the first handful of strawberries from our small patch this past weekend and I don’t mind saying that they are pretty darn yummy. However, our small patch doesn’t really give us enough berries for the amount we eat so we bought some more as well. We’ve frozen some but most will be eaten fresh. I also wanted to play a little with an idea I had for jam. The resulting, Peppered Balsamic Berry Jam is pretty darn good if I do say so myself. It might seem like a strange flavor combination but I assure you it’s positively yummy.
