I love summer. I love the long, warm days and the fresh fruit that is abundantly available. I grew up on a farm, and we had a wealth of fruit in our backyard—strawberries, raspberries, cherries and an apple orchard. One of my fondest memories is of making jam with my mom. We would go out in the early morning hours and pick the fruit and then make jam. She often made fresh bread to go with the jam. What a treat!
