Picking the Currants

Berry picking season continues and we’re picking lots of delicious summer fruits here at my Bedford, New York farm.

Over the last couple of weeks, my housekeepers have been busy picking lots of raspberries. They’ve also harvested boxes of currants - those bright red, white, pink, and black juicy, sour fruits packed with antioxidants, minerals, and loads of vitamin-C. 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 for later use.
