Red currants I harvested from our bush last weekend. It doesn’t look like much in this big basket, but it amounted to about 1 1/2 pounds of berries once the stems were removed.
Lovely! It’s too bad I am not a fan of the taste, because they are remarkably lovely berries to look at. :]
Nice harvest! Totally makes my piddly little blackcurrant harvest look sad. But then again, these are only first year plants, I couldn’t expect a whole lot ;).
Delicious! I wish these were easier to find! If they grow on a bush, maybe we can plant one then…
Never tasted one, they sure look good though.
the curants are a true treasure> A lovley woman gave me raspberries to start my garden and I could have taken some currants your pic shows me how much I regret it! Enjoy
just so happens i have 2 of those growing beautifully along my driveway, as well as a black, and 2 blue currant bushes. all though they have a bit of a bite when eaten fresh, they are outstanding on any of your favorite breakfast items as a topping once sweetened a little. i have yet to find a good preserve or jam recipe, any suggestions?
I have them in my garden also, I enjoyed them for the first time this year. I had to put a bird cage over the plant so the animals didn’t eat them. Gramma used to make current jam, so delicious.
