We Be Jammin'
Over the last couple of years as we've been landscaping our property, we've slowly incorporated edible plants. We have a fig tree, blueberry bushes, rhubarb, asparagus and strawberry plants alongside ornamental grasses and native perennials. But my husband's favorites are the two black current bushes in the side garden.
The other day he harvested the berries, macerated them overnight with sugar, and then cooked down a batch of black currant jam. He used this recipe.
He has several avid fans (including me).
"You mean you made all that jelly and you didn't save any for me?!"
Now that's better! (However, Abraham remains sorely disappointed.)
