We have LOTS of redcurrants ready for the 2014 season. They are huge, due to the recent rains. Since the season got a late start, we should have them into the first week of August, so tell everyone you know!
These jewel-like berries are strongly tart-sweet so add an kick to pies, tarts, summer puddings and other baked berry treats. They are often used atop cheesecakes, and in jellies and sauces for meats. Those of us who enjoy drinking cranberry juice, hibiscus tea or sucking on lemons like them raw.
