....and they make the king of jams!
That sounds lovely. It’s that pre-bedtime of night when I’m itching for something like that, when a cup of tea and biccy is just dull.
It's a great combination, but so is gooseberry & chilliJust spent two days down in the woods with a bunch of total beginners; they'd never seen wild gooseberry before! Mind you, they are the size of large peas (the gooseberries that is).
Is it coincidence that gooseberries and elderflower are ready at the same time? My favourite Pie
I transplant once the leaves have fallen. They are fairly heavily rooted so a good prune & a sharp flat spade.I used to hunt birds with big Chesapeake Bay Retrievers.
The gooseberries in autumn were always a treat that I left for the dogs to eat.
The dogs are gone but the gooseberries remain. I don't really care for them.
Prune heavy in the late autumn and transplant?
We grow all the currants (black, white & red). I may well layer off another hundred square feet of blackcurrants, they are so versatile! Try sloe & blackcurrant jelly on venison, its incredible!I will watch this later. Always nice to learn something new on the food front!
Do you have Black currants? Any pro ideas there?
