Print 52 week 13 – jam making lino print
This weeks lino print is all about jam making!
We have some fruit bushes at the bottom of the garden, there’s blackcurrants, redcurrants, whitecurrants and goosberries. This weekend the blackcurrent bush looked pretty sorry for itself – laden with fruit and sagging in the heat. I picked as many as I could, apart from some old ones and those at the back that my little arms couldn’t reach, and ended up with two huge mixing bowls full of the things. Now I love the sour flavour of currents and could eat them all day, but most people need a little sugar added to them so I decided to make some jam. Half the currants made 3 sizable jars, which should last forever. I’ll probably forget all about them and find them in three years time lurking at the back of the cupboard!
So, I still have a huge bowlful left and lots more redcurrants (my favourites!) and whitecurrants to come – any ideas??!
