|Blackcurrants, June 2017 (does not accurately indicate the extent of the flood!)|
This year so far it's been more than a pound of blackcurrants. Bear in mind the size of these berries--about the same as blueberries--and I think you'll agree this is a LOT for two bushes to produce in one year: and harvest isn't over yet.
We've been picking them every few days for the past week, and making them into berry and banana smoothies, along with a few alpine strawberries, and raspberries and redcurrants (these two now finished). A bit tart, but very refreshing and tasty. There have definitely been enough for jam making, if we had been so inclined! But a smoothie is fresh and healthy, and we're looking forward to a few more next week.
