Yesterday we picked redcurrants at Kristin’s aunts place at Morviksanden. She has a beautiful place, but it’s steep and really hard to keep up.

Today we spent a few hours cleaning the redcurrants and then Kristin started making redcurrant rum (we’ve no idea if it’s going to be any good, but worth a try, there are people in the Harry Potters books that like it…) and made redcurrant ice cream.

The rest of the redcurrants will be mixed with sugar and frozen for later. Red currant mousse might be in our future, we’ll see.
