Farmer Barb's Red Currant Jelly

Mulberry Lane Farm is so excited to feature Farmer Barb's Red Currant Jelly for sale in The Granary. Not only is Farmer Barb a great tour guide, she can cook too!

When Farmer Pat saw that the farm's currant bush had a bumper crop of red currants, we asked our guides if anyone wanted to try their hand at making jelly. Farmer Barb stepped up to the plate (or should I say stove?). Farmer Pat picked the ripe berries and Farmer Barb (with a lot of help from her family) made the yummy jelly.

Red currants are rather tart so are cultivated mainly for jams and cooked dishes, rather than for eating raw. You can even test taste the jelly in The Granary on crisp Wheat Thin crackers before you purchase.

Thank you Farmer Barb for all your hard work!
