Red Currant Season

DSC_0001Today I picked the bulk of the red currants on our bush. I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with them- jam? syrup? freeze?
DSC_0009 Stems removed and rinsed I decided to go with freezing in 1 cup portions so that they can be used in smoothies, desserts, in yogurt or why not red currant pancakes? Freezing will still allow me to make jam if I choose to but making jam won’t leave any wiggle room for other uses.
