Picking Currants at My Farm

It’s berry picking season at the farm, and all my bushes are just bursting with sweet, delicious fruits.

This week, we picked some beautiful currants - those bright red, white, and black juicy, sour fruits. I’ve been growing currants for many years. I love using them to make jams and jellies, tarts and pies. They're also very easy to freeze and store for later use. In addition, currants are among the most nutritious of berries. They’re packed with antioxidants, minerals, and loads of vitamin-C. Currants are multi-stemmed, hardy, fast growing deciduous shrubs that are easy to grow and easy to maintain.
