Pick Your Own (PYO) Strawberries

We went strawberry picking this weekend. Having disappointment over PYO weeks ago
[ reasons being: 1. we went late in the afternoon 2. berries were still developing] , we thought we give it another try. This time around, not only the berries were huge plus juicy and weather were smiling sunshine at us. We went and picked 2 punnets and additional pick and eat along the way. You can't get strawberries fresher than this, right from the plant into your mouth :-) .
Few days ago I was browsing bbc food websites for what's in season, and voila there's a video showing how to make strawberry jam. I decided to make strawberry jam. With strawberry jam then comes the Cornish clotted cream and scones....make the perfect afternoon cream tea.... what a bliss yeah.
For this recipes, I cut down on sugar to 800-850gm instead of 1kg as I prefer my jam to be less sweet. My verdict of this recipes is good. Give it a try. :-)
