Yesterday I went strawberry picking for the first time ever. In my mind, I wanted to get around 20-25 pounds of strawberries. I ended up with 1 flat full and it was only about 13.5 pounds. Crawling on a row of straw, with a baby on my back was tiring and 1 flat was plenty. I figured I could always go back! We had a blast with our friends too!
Then, after talking with Jen again, I decided to mix them up a little so the juice from the strawberries would help the apples not stick. I threw them on high and let them sit all day. My house still smells delicious!! I purchased the Infantino squeeze station this week and decided that I would squeeze this batch into pouches for Leilani so we can take them camping! The squeeze station was a bit tedious, but overall a great product and I’m really excited for what else we can make! Here is what it looked like.
That’s all for today. Tomorrow will be more strawberry stuff. I want to do a strawberry puree with a rough chop of strawberries and freeze into ice cubes to make strawberry lemonade and then possibly some jam. For sure I will be freezing some for later use in smoothies, yum. I’m sure I’ll be sick of strawberries by the time I can see the bottom of the cardboard crate.
