Redcurrant carnage

Yesterday, Kelly & I went to visit Harriet, she invited us to pick redcurrants. An absolute golden opportunity..... few could say they had had the pleasure.It started out as the most fabulous experience but started to get a bit tedious when we realised it had taken us 3 hours to strip the currants off ONE BUSH. (No lunch in the mean time, just some builders strength tea.)
How's this for a whopping blackcurrant.....
This morning I thought I'd just make a few quick pots of redcurrant jelly. Three more hours later & two trips to the shop for Richard to get (7 kilos of ) sugar. The kitchen looked like a crime scene.

One of my Brides today looked sooo much like you at her age. I had to tell her, so then I had to tell her about how gorgeous your wedding was.
