When I was a child around my home there were a lot of red currant and gooseberry bushes. I never liked fresh fruit. I didn't like eating it and picking it was even worse. Now the bushes are only memories and I buy fruit at the market.
Currants are a rich source of ascorbic acid, and they enhance the immune system and blood system. Not too many people know that red currants increase the appetite, which makes them a good option for parents of fussy eaters. Red currants used as a mask are recommended for people with oily skin and acne problems.
I usually use currants for cakes. Today, however, I was reminded of a simple dessert from my childhood, which my mum often prepared. I made kissel with red currants and gooseberries for my children.
700g of red currants and gooseberries
