Judging by how cool it has been you would never guess that it is summer. But today we got confirmation - the first ripe salmonberries of the season. When the salmonberries are ripe it is summer. We found 4 of them, and so it is official. But it sure does not seem like summer. It has been grey and we have had only a few days where the temperature has topped 60 degrees.
Nora is excited because she wants to pick a bucket of berries and make jelly. Lately she has been beating up frozen strawberries (from Cost Savers) in a bowl and making her own 'jelly'. This morning she even put her 'homemade jelly' on toast for breakfast.
Nora's recipe for Homemade Strawberry Jam
"Here maybe you get a frozen strawberry, maybe 5 or 4 or however many you want.
Put them under water, take a fork and a bowl and munch (mush) them up.
Munch and munch.
Take a spoon after you are done and put it on a piece of bread. And then gobble it up!!" Quoted directly from Nora
