|Ripe blackcurrants in our front yard begging to be picked...|
The most time consuming part was removing the blossom end from each blackcurrant. We ended up with 2 1/2 C. of currants which we boiled with about 1 C. of water. Next, we added 1 C. of sugar and roughly 1 1/2 T. of lemon juice and boiled for ten minutes.
