My late mother-in-law, Mary Bales, always came to visit us in South Bend, Indiana, every June when the strawberries were ripe. We would pile into the car and go to Hilltop Farms to pick the strawberries. The aroma in the car going home was out of this world. When we arrived back at my house Mary showed me how to make freezer jam. I never knew it could be so easy. We had jam all through the winter all the way up until the next strawberry season. Mary is gone now but her wonderful recipes live on.
