Our master gardener friend and neighbor has red currant bushes; about six of them. And if he gets to them before the birds do, these lovely red fruit make a lovely jam. This year, he allowed my daughter and I to pick a bucket.
Combing the internet for a simple jam recipe, I came across this gem.
I added a bit less sugar (about 3/4 cup to every kilo). And I did not have nearly as much jam because we had a lot less berries. But this was quite fantastic. Best of All? It was really simple and really quick. No messing with gelatin or canning. Just simple red berry bliss!
