A bumper crop of red currants this year
R has gone mad with his new ice cream maker, we have liters and liters of red currant sorbet in the freezer.
I stick with my 80 year old sieve, bought at a church rummage (jumble) sale many decades ago. Surprisingly the berries yielded a sparse amount of juice, I suppose because it has been so dry. (eat your heart out Brits).
I managed to get this .... my special red currant jelly, must say it is excellent. I could make another batch if I find the time. There are still lots on the vine, I love them in a tabbouleh.
For the past month we have been gathering a big bowl of raspberries every morning......more sorbet, by now we are begging yogurt containers from the neighbors. I am beginning to look like a raspberry as I eat so many.
Alas the end is in sight here.
Black currants, white currants and gooseberries in lesser amounts to come.
