Last February, my 96 year old stepfather very plaintively told me that he had finished up the last jar of my strawberry preserves and did I have another jar by any chance hanging around that he could have.
Unfortunately, I had used up all the strawberry preserves and had to say no but told him that as soon as the strawberries come in I will make you more.
Jack has been very sick ever since that conversation and I have felt like I am in a race for time to get strawberry preserves made again.
So, I am celebrating that I have won the race with time and made the preserves this weekend.
Enjoy your holiday weekend,
