Vince carrying our haul of red currants back from the Borough Hall Farmers Market. They were grown by Wilklow Orchards in the Hudson Valley. We were too late for the black currants, which had sold out, but I'll be back early next week for those. They make an intense jam. Half of these currants are turning a quantity of gin pink. I may freeze some, in sauce-form, for future tarts. Still thinking. It takes a while to pull them from their stalks, but I reward myself with a fat currant from every third or fourth bunch.
