This is an annual happening at our house. The head groundskeeper
picks half of the currents and leaves the other half for our garden birds.

It was a bumper crop this year...:smile:

Never have had currant jelly. Wife makes muscadine preserves with all the skins, just no seeds. We have a few muscadine vines, plus 53 blueberry bushes, but we usually freeze the blueberries. We fight over the muscadines for preserves and wine.

Good Lord, 8 pints and 15 half pints! Oh yeah, looks like a couple of bulging lids on the half pints, maybe not cool yet?

Wooley, the head groundskeeper makes the jelly. There’s only really half
of what you see, the backsplash is mirror. :biggrin2:

chandler, the head guy would be in heaven with all your property, 56
blueberry bushes, oh my!

I keep forgetting about your vanity backsplash. That's still a lot of jelly though. Didn't even notice the two faucets etc.

Yes, it is...He just finished last year’s crop and he did make about double
of what he made last year. He’ll give a couple of jars to our neighbor, who
loves it, and say’s it’s the best jelly he’s ever had...and then a couple of
jars to our kids...and the rest he’ll eat!

I've still got most of the jelly I made in 2017. Wife was eating a lot of it. Her doc and I chewed on her butt about blood glucose levels and she finally stopped eating it. I eat very little usually.

I got fooled, awhile back, by that mirror.
Hehe..it doubles the fun...

Colby, It’s not as much work as it looks, I spot clean it with windex and a
paper towel...and the head guy cleans it once a week with a squeegee.
He does the counter tops with a squeegee too. We even have mirror
over the stove, although a few years ago, we tiled up about 6” and did
mirror the rest of the way.
