Friday afternoon we drove out to Dykstra's farm to buy fresh strawberries for making jam. Mrs. F.G. has always made jam - strawberry, peach, raspberry, black currant, you name it. It's an annual summer ritual never to be broken. Even though we don't use a lot, it gets used for small thank you gifts on various occasions when a personal touch is appreciated. And my favourite, the black currant, does get used!
