Red currant picking
I got the kids to help and make it a family affair. After all, they actually are the one consuming most of the jam in the house. In Spring, they got so excited seeing the bush get his first leaves and see the red currants going from white to bright red. As you know, I really think getting kids involved is important with their relationship with food. I talked about it here and here.
2 ingredients & effortless few steps
This might be your winning combo for your effortless red currant jam! Sugar and this sour fruits: clean them well, mix with sugar and cook for an hour. Pour in jar and voila! I can’t simplify this recipe more!
It will be a small batch, just the perfect amount to a bunch of nice toast on weekends, the perfect treat!
I like that it is a small batch because it skips the steps of sterilizing. Just 2 jars that can be stored in the fridge. I make your life easier.
