Several years ago our black-currant bushes were killed off by a fungus that is rife in Connecticut. So today, after several years without enjoying these wonderful fruit, we made a trip to Maple Lane Farms in Preston, CT to "pick our own".

It was a cool morning and we arrived just as they opened (8am) so we had the place to ourselves. The result: 10lbs of fruit ready for the freezer before lunchtime. This should keep us going in the cold days of winter as a tasty topping for our oatmeal.
