That is what my red currant looked like a week ago and today, the berries are ripe to be picked up. So I did it but only from one of the six red currant bushes I got. There are so many berries on them!
I picked up three great bowls of berries and decided to make a jelly of them. I love this sweet-sour taste of jelly in pancakes or in fruit cakes. Sometimes I add a little bit water and pour it over the ice cream cup.
I love to eat fresh berries too. Don't you just love this bright red color? To extract the juice I used my tomato juicer.
With this machine everything is very easy and quickly done. The juice goes on one side, the rest on the other, no need to remove the stems either! Then, the juice, sugar and special jelly sugar should be cooked together for a short time and poured hot into warmed up glass jars.
I always use small jars to spend the jelly before it grows mold.
