    there’s something a little upsetting about dumping quarts of perfectly ripe strawberries into a big pot and boiling them until they dissolve away into little lumps. it feels violent, violate…then in goes the sugar and the lemon juice, and they start to foam and whimper a little. i’m so sorry little berries! but then, you pour it into a jar, and seal it up, and you have that taste of early summer at your (sticky) fingertips for months and months to come…so then, it seems alright, what you’ve done.
