We are a family passionate about our berries. One of us, who shall remain unnamed, has been known for swiping pints of blueberries out of the fridge and eating them in the closet. So when I spied pints of strawberries on sale at my grocery store, we loaded the cart with so many that the boys' eyes shone.
This weekend Addie and I got down to business with those berries, making pints and pints of jam, freezing trays of sliced berries for smoothies and ice cream this summer, and baking strawberry tarts. Addie made it even sweeter by singing in her famous falsetto voice the entire time she washed the dishes.
