Popular Post Kirby Posted July 2, 2018 Popular Post Share #1 Posted July 2, 2018 When I was young and we'd go to the Catskills for the summer, there were some currant bushes n the back yard. Every summer we'd pick the currants and my Mom and Grandmother would make currant jelly. This made me happy since I liked current jelly. Picking the currants was a big responsibility. There weren't that many bushes and you couldn't waste currants by picking them before they were ripe or accidentally pulling off a whole group of currants. This made me a little nervous. When we got older and didn't go to the Catskills anymore, my dad transplanted some of the bushes to their backyard and we'd still have currant jelly. This made me glad since I liked the tradition. When I got my condo, I planted some currant bushes in the backyard. This made me feel very prosperous. Between my parents' currants and mine, we'd have a lot of currant jelly . This made my sister very happy (the traditional one who always gets the open faced turkey sandwich) since she likes traditions too. Now that my Mom no longer has her house, I was the only source of currants. This made me worried, because the birds and animals have found my currant bushes and usually get to the currants before I do. The last two years the animals got all the currants before I did, which made me sad. I found a commercial brand of currant jelly that my sister says tastes almost as good as the homemade jelly. That makes me happy for her, although a little sad. Today I looked out and saw some currants on my bushes. I decided to go out and take a look, This made me feel adventurous. There seemed to be a number of currants, so I decided to pick them as I did in the past. This made me feel nostalgic. So I picked the currants for over 30 minutes which seemed a lot longer because it was almost 100 degrees and humid. This made me feel very tired and hot. Now I have some currants and I don't know if there are enough to make jelly or if my sister won't want to bother because she's happy with her store bought currant jelly. I will find out on the 4th of July. This makes me filled with anticipation. The End. 10 3 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
