This is one pound of berries to one liter of added water. Procedure was wash, cook until soft, blend into a slurry, screen, and place in liter jars, pressure can at 15 PSI for 15 minutes. There is very little residue from the screening. The method of picking was to make a mesh over a container and swipe it along the branch to collect the berries. Currant berries do not fall off, they have to be removed. Cleaning is by covering in water and removing the debris and then hand picking the remaining residue. There is one more bush to harvest, which will be left about a week to further ripen the fruit. Currant juice is very pleasant.
