ABC Wednesday-B

I was not aware that currants are considered to be berries. Berry means any small fruit that can be eaten whole and lacks objectionable seeds.


Some are: Blueberries,(Vaccinium spp.); Currants,(Ribes spp. Grossulariaceae);Strawberries,(Fragaria);Raspberries,several species (genus Rubus)...your favorite? Raspberries for me--hands down!!

  2. Just love the red fruits of summer. We don't see so many black, red and white currants here - they exist but not as many as strawberries, raspberries, cherries and blueberries. Ah summer!

  6. My favourite dessert is a mixture of them all with just a bit of whipped cream. I would of course accept to eat them seperately also, even without cream! Just too good all this!

  14. I am hoping, Kate, my two currant bushes will produce enough next summer for me to get a handful. I will have to propagate them and made several more. I really like currant jam and it brings back a lot of memories. We can buy it here at Krogers large supermarket. I like your post and your photos.
