Total Value: $290
Okay so I need a way to determine our savings. I am going to base my savings on strawberries from the store averaging $2. a pound. I know they go cheaper during this time of the year, but I think this should cover myself okay b/c we frequently buy frozen strawberries and they might not be as cheap as $2. a pound.
Not all of the strawberries are pictured.
We picked 145lbs of strawberries…
NO, you did not misread that. I just grabbed lots of bins & had no idea how much volume/weight they would hold!
Our goal was 100lbs, so obviously we hit that 🙂
So what did we do with all of those berries?
We froze about 80-90 lbs of berries and made 24 pints of jam.
The strawberries are taking up about quite a bit of space in my very large chest freezer!
FYI I didn’t include my savings for making our own jam. I might come back later and add the potential savings just for my own records!
