3 years ago, Chris planted a currant (Ribes nigra) bush down in Nutberry Noak. There followed a fallow year when all bindweed was eradicated. Yesterday, I picked our first ever crop of blackcurrants. This morning, it was a very early start to make jam and beat the heat. From just over 1lb of fruit, I made 3 jars and a little bit which was eaten for breakfast! It has a deliciously piquant flavour is very high in vitamin C and because of its high pectin content, is super easy to make. What's not to love?
