I picked the last of the blackcurrants yesterday and made blackcurrant curd last night. Not an evening for standing over a bowl over a pan of boiling water.

Sounded like a load of kids arguing in the playground.  His 5 small jars turned into three and a half medium  jars, but it didn't curdle and most important, it tastes great.

Loosestrife beetles and larvae predate on loosestrife. Have you got a photo.?
