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.

Thank you! I actually wrote this on my mobile while stirring strawberry jam that I was making to give a friend!
