Looks like a bumper crop

Looks as if I will have a bumper crop of redcurrants this year.


 I have started saving my jars for more of this  (scroll down). I have never tried freezing them, perhaps I should give it a go. Maybe I could come up with a fantastic summer cocktail using the juice.( bet its good with gin)
Oh...I have just come up with this and I like this vinaigrette too, I bet that will keep in the fridge for a couple of months, what do you think?

 This is the first year our parsley has wintered over as we had an unusually mild winter.

Yellow Bird magnolia, planted about 5 years ago is putting on a show at last.
Back to textiles next week.


  1. mmmm - a vinaigrette? Sounds like it would be right up my alley!

  2. Oooh, red currants! I use the in my Norwegian Red Cabbage. So good!

  3. Redcurrants freeze beautifully :o) I kept a whole crop for a year until I finally got around to making redcurrant jelly. I just washed and dried the fruit, bagged and weighed them and put them in the freezer. When I was ready to make the jelly just cooked them from frozen - no problem at all :o)

  4. oh I love those yellow flowers what a pretty color!
    I just happen to love yellow!
    have a great weekend.
    thanks for sharing your garden with us I love seeing pictures like this

  5. Sounds delicious & the yellow magnolias - beautiful!
