    That jelly is so pretty! I think I’ve had homemade redcurrant jam from people who had it in their gardens, but I don’t think I’ve seen it sold in supermarkets so it’s probably not as popular here as it is in Germany. Maybe I should make it myself! I’m still a little afraid of canning, though, so I’ll have to read up on proper food safety guidelines first. Or just eat it all before it can go bad. :)
    I’m so glad you mentioned gelling sugar, because I know people over here use that as well but for some reason I always thought it contained gelatin. Apparently it’s just pectin and citric acid. Here I was thinking I couldn’t eat it. So that’s great news! :)

    Ooh what a lovely red colour! :) This brings back fond memories from my trip to Hamburg last month — I got some vegan ice cream from a shop in Johannisbeere flavour. I didn’t know what flavour it was and I didn’t mind (I’ll eat any ice cream so long as it’s vegan!) but the woman in the shop was insistent on telling me what the flavour was. However, she didn’t know how to say the word in English and eventually she shouted out to the whole shop to ask for a translation, and about 20 people tried to translate it for me! Everyone was super friendly and helpful in the shop. :) And the ice cream was delicious too. Thinking of it makes me want some redcurrant – as an ice cream, a jelly or on its own. Yours looks great!

  • I grew up in Sweden and currants are definitely a wonderful childhood memory! This jelly looks incredible Mihl, your photography is gorgeous.

    So beautiful! Red currants are very uncommon in the US. I think you can buy red currant jam at stores with imported items. I don’t know if I’ve ever tried it! I think grape and strawberry are probably the most popular jams or jellies here.

    oh my goodness, Mihl, such beautiful pictures! Currants are something I really miss from my time in Europe. I love red currants, and I especially love black currants. I don’t think I’ve ever even seen currants over here in the U.S. and we are missing out! The jelly looks so gorgeous. :)

  • Lovely!

    That jelly is so pretty! I’m terrified of canning, but if I had redcurrants here I might try to get over it a little faster.

    I’m not familiar with red currant jam. Your photos are so beguiling that I don’t know if it’s the jam I want, or just the image!

    Your pictures are too beautiful! I’ve actually never made jam…I’ll have to get on that.

    I have never made jelly! I need to get with the times. Everyone is canning everything, and I need to pick up some of these skills!

      Yeah, it is funny, isn’t it? A couple of years ago canning would have seemed so old fashioned and now everybody is doing it.

    Those redcurrants and the jam look seriously magical! I imagine eating it in a woodland forest surrounded by deer and little forest creatures with a beam of sun shining down on us. Gorgeous!

    Where are the donuts?! lol, I guess I’ll have to be patient.
    I’ve never made jam OR have had red current jelly. I’ve always wanted to make my own jam but it seems like a lot of work, either that or I’m afraid I won’t sterlize something properly and kill myself. If I ever stumble across red currents I’ll have to try this!

      They are coming! later this week. I have to admit that I didn’t sterilise my jars. I just washed them with soap and hot water. And I gave most of the jelly away, so I won’t die from it:)
