Gluts and surpluses

Postby Primrose » Wed Jul 11, 2018 1:25 pm

Just had the annual comment from my other half. "Oh No, not more bl**dy red-currants!" :lol:
,
I,ve just given two lots away and still have one bush to pick so any ideas for some easy recipes for desserts that can be used with things like cream or yoghurt please?

They have a rather sharp taste, even when ripe so the trouble is that a little usually goes a long way. (And embarrassingly I still have some from last year year still left in the freezer).

I was thinking that if this was still WW2 they would be boarded like gold dust for their vitamin C and I feel rather guilty for complaiming that I currently have rather too much of a good thing !

Made a gallon of wine with mine, and I've just been looking at a red currant jelly recipe for any extra ones.

I'm just trying to decide what to do with 14 lb cherries. I've given the neighbour a couple of pounds too. I'm not complaining though as it's a treat to get a good crop. The blackbirds are going mad for Amelanchier berries and the blue tits haven't made little peck marks in many of the cherries either for a change. It's an odd year too as the sparrows have ignored the peas which is very unusual.
