Red currant jelly
« on: July 12, 2018, 14:50 »
I made a big batch this morning following recipe from this site, but please tell me it mellows a bit before winter  ???
Right now it is so sour it feels like it is stripping the enamel from my teeth  :ohmy: Although it does look really pretty in its jars, I couldn't possibly share it around as it is  :nowink:

I always find it very sharp when I've made it, and then by Christmas somehow It I OK... but not quite as you describe. Maybe the fruit is more sour this year? :( ???

I've only got as far as the juice so far (it is in the fridge in a big jug) so fingers crossed
