The nice thing about making freezer jam is that it doesn't take a lot of berries. I don't have a huge strawberry patch, and the day neutral variety I grow doesn't put forth a lot of berries at once, but bears almost constantly from July until a hard frost puts a halt to them. So far the berry patch has given us enough for several strawberry shortcakes, and today I made my second batch of jam.
I now have ten jars of delicious strawberry jam in the freezer, and the berries will continue to yield. But I'm in a jam with my jam.......I have no more room! Yes, I bought a second freezer last month.
It's nearly full. It was supposed to only hold meat, but I've already had to use it for cheese, bread and butter. There is barely enough room for a small basket to fit in on the left side, which I suppose will have to hold the jams and some fruit packages. That means no more chicken until the bread is used up.
The larger freezer was supposed to hold all the fruits and veggies, but there's only a small space at the left rear to put a few more bags of green beans, and I'll have a lot more beans to freeze!
Even the refrigerator freezer is packed full. It was supposed to hold breads and ice cream. It holds much more than that already.
I really should have bought a larger freezer, rather than a smaller one!
