Redcurrents

Finnish aesthetic

‘‘Hey uh I’d like something to drink’‘ you say. I smile. ‘‘Yeah just come over here I think I have some juice in the freezer’‘. You follow me. I open the freezer. There is only blackcurrant-redcurrant juice, and cloudberries. The freezer is full of them, nothing else. You look at me, horrified. I have tears in my eyes. ‘‘Please’‘, I say, now sobbing as much as I can, ‘‘take some of the boxes. I can’t take this anymore’‘

FIRST PART

I went to the Spring & Trend Fair. 

I bought some Appenzeller specialities made in the canton of Appenzell/Switzerland. You can see the first picture. The pie it’s a cinnamon pie. It’s made with sugar/eggs/flour/cream/cocoa and spices: cinnamon, clove powder and redcurrant jelly for the bottom. 

Also on the first picture, amaretti cookies and the little sweets (who looks like half moon) it’s called Birnbrot, the one I bought it’s from Appenzell, a speciality from Swiss Germany. You can read about it, link below.

It was raining and called, I went to the Cornish Pasties to get a hot chocolate and after almost 20 years, I ate cotton candy. :-))

Gooseberries, currants, and more (Ribes sp.) ripening

All the Ribes species over in berryland seem to be having a fine season - some won’t crop until next year, but I’ve managed to cram a number of species into the landscape.

Their shade-tolerance will be an asset as the surrounding trees begin to form a canopy.
