Eat Local

Our Sunnyside neighbor has a red currant bush that is very prolific. Last year I asked him if I could harvest the currants and make jelly if I shared the resulting jars with him. He looked at me with some doubt in his eyes but agreed. The currants were harvested and frozen but no jelly was produced.

This year, as the little berries began to form, he asked me if I wanted them, this time with a laugh as if to say "yah, that jelly sure was good last year."

He and his wife are away at the moment but when they return...
