Google+ What I Made Today: Liquid Jewels

Liquid Jewels


Today I simmered some of my glimmering, red currants in preparation for jelly-making. This is not a skill of mine, so I've elicited the skillful support and wisdom of my mother-in-law. I consider her a master jelly-n-jam-maker.


I'll be freezing the resulting juice, strained and filtered as glistening clear as I can get it, and heading to her home with juice, sugar, pectin and jars, to watch, help and learn. It's about time, too!

That's what I made today. Peace.

They are so beautiful to look at! We harvested black currants and they are just wonderful to use in scones. Can't wait to make them!
