Branching out with Red Currants

Branching Out with Red Currants
I am not an experienced berry picker by any means. I like to stick to basic blueberries when out harvesting. The Fairbanks Daily News Miner published an engaging article about red currants and I was intrigued. While September is out of the harvest window for the berries, I began to realize there is a lot more to Alaska berries than just blueberries. The article written by Miki Collins also explained how to make the berries into jelly or a currant cake as well as a method of harvesting and processing them. Red currants will be on my ever expanding list of berries for next year. The link to the article can be found here:
