|First lot boiling|
|about half the crop..|
I love redcurrant jelly. I would eat it with sweet or savoury, on rice pudding, in yogurt, with lamb, or chicken, or spread on bread. Love it. So, how much redcurrant jelly can you get from just one bush?
I do not yet know. We picked 6lb 12 oz. From one bush.
I have boiled up 3lb, and it is dripping through the jelly bag. I have boiled up the remaining 3lb 12 oz, but that will have to wait until I have sorted the first lot, so I can use the jelly bag again.
|next lot on the boil|
and we have started picking damsons. Sweet and delicious and just gettiong on with themselves, with very little attention from me.
There is about 1lb 12 oz here, we should double that in the next day or two- any that evade eating raw- they will become jam too. You cannot beat home made jam!
And DD2 has been busy too. She and her Dad went picking raspberries at the PYO this morning.
And himself has gone in quest of jam sugar and lemons and ginger for making our delicious courgette and ginger jam. I love getting that store cupboard stocked with home made goodness.
Yes, I am trying to make you jealous!
