Red Currants

The red currants are ready, so I harvested around 4 cups this morning. Cleaned them (which despite using the speedy fork method seemed to take forever) and froze 3 cups in a Ziploc bag to be turned into red currant crumb bars later. None of my kids are in town at the moment, so I will make the crumb bars later this summer. I will enjoy the remaining currants macerated over yogurt or ice cream, or eat them fresh.

Cleaned and ready to be frozen …
… and the stems are ready for the compost

There are still tons of currants waiting to be harvested. I will harvest and freeze more in the next few days.
