> My favorite way to eat red currants (other than just plain) is to make rote gruetze or rotgrot or red fruit juice dessert.

Thanks for the recipe, Martha. (I was really intrigued by the recipes 
from Jacquelyn Kuehn in the Summer Pomona, too. I drool just thinking 
about the Strawberry-Rhubarb Coffee Cake.)

Although I don't usually cook, and I don't really want to start,... I 
also hate to waste anything. If I'm growing something, I want to eat it! 
(One reason why summer gardening is such a good thing for me, because I 
never even look at the vegetables in the grocery store - but I'll eat 
them, and greatly enjoy them, if I grow them myself.)

And when it comes to currants, I'm apparently going to have to cook them 
- or at least add sugar. So far, I've just stuck them in the freezer, 
but I'm making a note of all these recipes and maybe I'll try some this 

Thanks again,
