Loaves and fishes

Gooseberry jam and white currant jelly

Gooseberry jam and white currant jelly

A few hot, prickly afternoons went into picking white currants and gooseberries and further hours stripping and top-and-tailing.

From which came 5 small jars of gooseberry jam (reasonably enough), and 2 small jars of precious white currant jelly.

The white currants were extremely plentiful this year and in their raw state filled 3 ice cream tubs, so what happened? Isn’t this the miracle of the loaves and fishes in reverse?

No, because the white currant pulp was a major ingredient in 4 moist and delicious cakes!
