We love to enter the fair every year and we’ve won blue ribbons in the past. We had never tried this combination of strawberries and oranges and the flavor comes from fresh squeezed orange juice. It’s good stuff. The strawberries are from a local berry patch near Minneapolis.

  • Yields: 6 half-pints
