Toronto Photo Essay: Strawberry Jam Excursion

Photos and writing by guest contributor Arieh Singer.

Last weekend I went with my friend Hamutal to pick fresh organic strawberries at Applewood Farm Winery in Stouffville. Each 8-litre bucket was $15, and we each purchased three of them.

After we came home, it was time to learn how to make jam, and Hummy taught me all there was to know. The entire process took a few hours, but was filled with all kinds of interesting ways to use strawberries. Presently I have jam, frozen berries, strawberry-infused vodka, strawberry puree popsicles, and other goodies. It was a whole day of strawberry yumminess!
