  • Report post to moderator 21 July 2014 Black Currant. Processing for Juice.
Six pounds of perfect berries were harvested from one black current bush. The method of harvesting was to cut off the fruit beating branches and take them to the picnic table and remove the berries by swiping across a one inch mesh screen. This method effectively prunes the bush and efficiently removes the berries. Currants are tedious to pick if the berries are removed individually, so removing the bearing branches and swiping across a mesh is ideal. The berries were washed,covered with water, beat into a slurry, screened through a food mill, placed in one liter jars and pressure canned at 15 PSI for 15 minutes for long term storage at room temperature.Pictures depict the process.

brevity is the soul of wit - shakepeare. Tiny ad:
