I did manage to save some from the birds. It was a lot of work to pick even a few.
It took quite a bit of stretching and bending to find this many on the underside of the bush where birds could not find them. Then the sorting , stemming and washing. Some recipes said you could leave the stems, but I didn’t.
Really only about 2 cups of currants which made …..
exactly one jar of jelly! This is being saved for a special occasion!
Thanks to our weird spring weather I didn’t have any raspberries or blackberries, I hope they do better next year! But I did purchase some local raspberries and made some lovely jam from those.
Mmmmmm This is eaten for breakfast most days.
I have not made peach jam in many years but tried it again. Now I remember why I gave up making it. It won’t set for me. The flavour is good so I am going to use the slightly runny peach “sauce” in tarts and muffins. But the fresh peaches, they were yummy!
