Many people claim that apple pie is the all-American dessert, but I disagree. I’m sure that strawberry pie also has its place in American history. When I was little, my mother would take my siblings and I to a local strawberry field to pick berries. We would spend much of our afternoon in the field picking strawberries and having a good time together. I think my sisters and I ate more berries than we threw into our boxes. Well, they were super tasty!
Once we got the berries home, Mom would wash them all and start preparing them for storage. Mom would make jam, strawberry pie filling and applesauce. She would then put them in Mason jars in a huge pot on the stove. Good times!
