Currants

Freezing Currants

 I've been harvesting currants. I've planted so many currant bushes . . . When they are all as mature as the couple I've been harvesting from . . . they are going to be . . . overwhelming! So far I've mostly been freezing them. Putting them initially on cookie sheets to freeze, then bagging up. We use them with our homemade yogurt ice cream and many mornings with our dairy kefir, yogurt, oatmeal, homemade soaked cold cereal . . . When I do have an abundance I'll be making wine with them too. I'll also dry them.

Currant Pie

This year I made a currant pie. It was too sweet, so next year I'll make more pies and tweak the recipe till just right.
