This week at the farm­ers mar­ket I mar­veled at the fresh cur­rants cur­rent­ly in sea­son: spher­i­cal crim­son and blush-col­ored jew­els on del­i­cate, tiny green vines — as pho­tographed for Mrs. Wheel­bar­row’s Prac­ti­cal Pantry: Recipes and Tech­niques for Year-Round Pre­serv­ing by Cathy Barrow:

Yes, the book is an excel­lent resource for any sea­son, but there’s some­thing about can­ning sum­mer fruits at the end of July, isn’t there?
