    After reading the article in the Irish Times and publicly lamenting the demise of my currant crop after an attack by feathered friends, I got offered black currants by Margaret Griffin who was prompted by MC Digby. Having a surplus remaining after jam making, I decided to put them to good use and make the Crème de Cassis. So on Christmas morning 2013, my Kir Royale will have come courtesy of @foodborn @bibliocook and @mcdigby Merci beaucoup.

      De rien, Marie! Glad you got sorted for jam and cassis making.

      I’d really miss my annual supply of blackcurrant jam. Goes especially well with toasted Cinnamon Raisin Bread. As for the cassis…it’s disappearing far too quickly in this house at the moment!
