Last year, I didn’t can strawberries. I never came across enough affordable organic strawberries to make much of anything. Strawberries are one of the worst fruits for pesticide contamination. According to this list it comes in third place, after celery (no. 1) and peaches (no. 2). But, I couldn’t go another year without strawberry jam. So, I bought 4lbs of non-organic Californian strawberries and put up 8 half-pints of strawberry jam. It’s not local and full of pesticides but it tastes amazing! So this year I will be enjoying 8 half-pints of pesticide laced strawberry jam goodness. I can’t wait!
