strawberry picking and 5-minute jam!

I have several vacation-related posts coming up, but this one is jumping the queue because I wanted to publish it while it’s still strawberry season somewhere. Jeff and I went strawberry picking (my first time ever!) with Shannon and JR at Ariel’s Farm in Wilton, NY. We only got to pick about a pint each before an approaching storm chased us off the strawberry patch, but here we are with our little harvest:

The strawberries were so delicious (and so few) that we gobbled them all up by the next morning. But if I go strawberry picking again, I want to us this recipe to make 5-minute raw strawberry jam. The secret ingredient is chia seeds!
