Picking Gooseberries and Currants at the Farm

It’s berry picking season, and we’re picking an abundance of delicious summer fruits here at the farm.

Over the last couple of weeks, my housekeepers have been busy picking lots of raspberries and blueberries - in all different colors and varieties. They’ve also harvested boxes and trays of gooseberries and currants. Gooseberries are one of summer’s delights. The small, tart fruits are delicious eaten raw at the peak of ripeness or used for making jams, jellies, pies, and other desserts. Currants are those bright red, white, and black juicy, sour fruits. They’re packed with antioxidants, minerals, and loads of vitamin-C and they’re very easy to freeze and store for later use.
