strawberry season

Strawberries were plucked, goods were baked. Rapidly. Strawberries are so completely perishable, I had to act fast. I did end up freezing some, though, since I was exhausted by the end of the day and couldn't carry on with any further making/baking.
I made a quick strawberry jam, strawberry muffins, the ubiquitous strawberry shortcake, and some strawberry honey butter (which is particularly nice on the strawberry muffins). I plan on making a strawberry cake and some strawberry bread as well. I'm bummed I forgot to bake a pie. I imagine frozen strawberries won't work very well for a pie. I did mention earlier that I was forgoing sugar, but I forgot about strawberry season, so I will resume that next week.

I also made some yogurt, which is something I've been meaning to do for quite awhile, and was inspired after I got this book from the library. Very tasty with the jam. I feel so industrious!
