~fresh strawberries from the Farmer’s Market.
I used this recipe I had 8 quarts of berries, I used 5. I increased the sugar to 6 or 7 cups of sugar, I can not remember. I think 8 seemed like too much. I also increased the lemon juice to 1/2 cup. I had a little extra that I just poured into a jelly jar and I am using as a topping to my homemade yogurt.

That is a subject all to itself, but let me just say Wow! I love it. Very different from all the other yogurts I have had. This is so different, in ways that I am still trying to put words to.. but it is good. I used this recipe and it worked exactly as it should.
I find it slightly sour and with the right additions you can balance the sour with a sweet, then mix in a crunch and it rocks! I have spent a lot of time reading about the health benefits of real yogurt here and here so, I thought I would give it a try. I am so glad I did an my family loves it.
