If you didn't know already, July marked the beginning of blackcurrant season in the UK and we have been really busy in recent weeks at British Frozen Fruits harvesting our tasty organic blackcurrants on our South Herefordshire farm. Blackcurrant season is short and sweet so our strong, fruity, and slightly tart berries are best picked throughout July when they are at their peak sweetness and optimum ripeness.
The Harvesting Process
Due to the volume of organic blackcurrants that we grow on our farm, we pick them using a blackcurrant harvesting machine, this enables us to pick our blackcurrants efficiently on mass. Head over to our Instagram page where you will find

Super Quick Tropical Frozen Fruit Yoghurt
A tasty alternative to ice cream which requires no further freezing, making it quick and easy to make and serve on the spot. We love using Frozen Mangoes for this recipe, but you can use any frozen fruit of your choice! Why not use multiple fruits to really mix things up?
It’s strawberry season, and what better way to celebrate the first signs of summer than by sharing our favourite strawberry jam recipe? Making your own jam is relatively quick and easy (even for the not so confident of cooks!), so if you have a spare half an hour this week, why not give it a go? We are confident that after making your own homemade jam, you won’t ever want to buy jam from the supermarket again! This strawberry jam is bursting with flavour, making it the perfect addition on your toast, in scones or to fill a victoria sponge.

With the jingle of Santa’s sleigh bells in the distance, and with little fresh fruit available customarily December, isn’t the month to make preserves. However, with the festive season just around the corner it’s a perfect time to indulge in, and celebrate these jars of joy. For generations past, and very much with a heartfelt ‘waste not, want not’ approach to life these valuable stalwarts of the larder were made using seasonal fruit and veg gluts over the summer, stored away and then enjoyed, spoonful by spoonful, for many months to come. Home-made jams and preserves have been intrinsically linked to the festive season gracing the Christmas table; sometimes the star of the meal, other times simply there to brighten up left overs, but always prized.
