Red Currant And Peach Juice

I remember spending summer days on my grandparents’ farm, picking red currants off their shrubs.  Mind you, at that time, it was intense labour for my family, as my grandparents had A LOT of shrubs!  Just doing one was loads of work!  Each family member had a little stool and a bowl and we sat around and picked, picked, picked.  Ate some in between, of course.  You can’t beat that taste.  Hence, when red currants are in season, I absolutely must have them!

A lovely Red Currant and Peach Juice is SO good and super good for you!  Plus, it’s easy breezy to make!

Ingredients

  • 3 cups red currants
  • 3 ripe peaches
