Strawberry Rhubarb Jam

Strawberry season signifies the beginning of summer here in New Hampshire.  This year we opened the Cedar Circle Farm at 7am, jammin’ with their background music of The Grateful Dead, and within one hour my pickers were finished and we had 26 pounds of strawberries!  We made strawberry mouse, strawberry jam, strawberry rhubarb jam and froze 10 pounds for smoothies.
