Bountiful Harvest of Red Currants

 
In this photo Jean has just finished picking some of the red currants that we use in the red currant jam at Lightfoot Farm. We are hoping to produce more red currants on the farm and have recently planted more bushes. The red currant is a member of the gooseberry family and the latin name for the genus is Ribes.
 
Red currants have many health benefits.  They help to maintain a good balance of electrolytes. They are a good antioxidant and are rich in anthocyanins and proanthocyanin.  Red currants are benficial for diabetics and heart patients.  They also have blood cleansing and digestive properties (from www. onlyfoods.net).
