Strawberry jam

Bubble, bubble, toil and trouble,
Luscious berries in the pot.
One part berry, sugar double.
Churn the mixture while it’s hot.
Once the viscous mass is ready,
Pour into a pretty jar.
Take a breath of fragrance heady.
Store away for months afar.
Cheesecake, pudding, pie and tart
Embellished with gorgeous reds.
At summer’s height when sunlight smarts,
Recapture sumptuous winter spreads.
