NEW VIDEO — Jammin’ Strawberries

When we wrote about strawberries in June, we promised you a video on making French-style jam. After a busy month of weeding, harvesting and planting fall crops for Barbara and making plans to move to Italy for me, we’re finally fulfilling our promise. Although strawberry season has come and gone (sort of–we’ve still been able to get some delicious ones at our local farmer’s market),  we’re excited to share our first Open View Gardens video and hope you will find it both entertaining and useful and that it will inspire you to make your own French-style jams without commercial pectin! We have many more videos on the way so stay tuned for more.

Watch Barbara share her stories and instructions!
