Lots of them again this year. They add their strong orangy red hue to the autumn colour scheme.

213/2011 currants galore



213/2011 currants galore, originally uploaded by rosipaw.

Blackcurrants in my brother’s garden are ready to be picked. The branches are really heavy with the clusters of berries.

This is a superfood, rich in vitamin C. I must say, on their own they taste quite bitter, but we usually make juice out of them. In my childhood, the common cold medicine used to be hot blackcurrant juice. It eased a sore throat in an instant! I can also remember how much more I used to enjoy picking these berries, sitting comfortably on a stool in the garden, as opposed to squatting in a mosquito infested forest for blueberries, for example!

I have become a daily client at a nearby berry booth. I come home with a box of strawberries, raspberries and blueberries each, to stock up with the vitamins for the winter. I and my family just love the fresh summer goodies!
