Sweets of the Season

I might have mentioned this before, but I LOVE this time of year! One of my most favorite things about the month of June are Cherries and Strawberries!
The Cherries are a little late this year. They started ripening at the same time as the strawberries.
Over the weekend we stopped by a strawberry farm and picked up 10 quarts. I usually pick my own but I've had some back issues this past week (thanks to zumba) so we bought them already picked.
They are so yummy!
I made a yummy strawberry pie last night with some fresh whipped cream.
We still have a lot of jam left from last year when I picked 40 pounds!!! So I didn't really want to make more jam.
I froze some with sugar. I just cleaned them cut the bigger ones in half and then sprinkled some sugar over them and let them sit for about 10 minutes before putting them in freezer bags!
Super easy and they will be great to use for short cakes!
I also started thinking about strawberry cordial. Actually, I was thinking about Anne of Green Gables when she served strawberry cordial. I always thought it sounded good, so I went searching for a recipe on Pinterest of course!
I used this recipe and it turned out pretty yummy!
Its a concentrate that you add water to.
My husband has stopped drinking pop but water gets kinda old after awhile so this will be a nice change!
