Red Currents and Red Current Jelly Drawing by Leonas Designs

Red Current Berry

Picking after school

Bane of my existence

But their yummy jelly

Was my sweet reward

5 Syllabic Verse

A bittersweet memory….šŸ˜Š

When I was young we had 5 Red Current bushes in our backyard which were the pride and joy of my mom who loved Red Current Jelly but their existence was a bane to my brother and I as we were the daily fruit pickers!

It was our after school chore and one we immensely disliked! But….we did enjoy eating the yummy jelly on our toast that mom made from the berries.

I found this recipe online that is very similar to my mom’s, not sure that I am ready to make any of this jelly, but perhaps you readers might.
