It's that time of year again!
Soft fruit is just so forgiving in any garden. You really don't have to do anything more than pick it once a year!
I searched around the bushes, shrubs and fences in the garden and managed to put together this little melange of Summer fruit.
This particular blackcurrant bush has taken a few years to find its feet. It was a transplanted gift from someone when they moved away. These are just so enormous they could even be Jostaberries
- a hybrid between blackcurrants and gooseberries. I will have to find out.
Just a few blackberries are ripe too. One blackberry at the end of each floret is ripe first when all the others are still green. There were a handful of blackberries too.
So line a pudding basin with white bread slices then lightly cook the fruit with some sugar and wait till the fruit just softens and some juice comes out.
Spoon this fruit and juice into the bread then cover the top with a couple more slices of bread. Put a plate on top and weight it down in the fridge for at least 24 hours.
