On Saturday I went black-currant picking with my good friends Roger and Ruth. We do this most years, its lovely to get out into the countryside at the Moutere. This is perhaps 1/2 hour from Nelson. It took us about 2 hours for me to pick nearly 3 kilo's, and the weather was kind to us, overcast at times which helped. Thanks to the lovely growers there who allow people to pick free at the end of the season. On the way back popped into Kahurangi Estate Winery for some tasting and buying.
1/2 Cup Sugar
2tsp Baking powder
Use 2/3 cups fruit
Sprinkle with icing sugar when cool.
350 deg for 20 min
Just cream butter and sugar then add egg then dry ingredients. Roll out and line tin, this can be challenging but it doesn't matter if it gets to be like a jigsaw puzzle it all works out in the end
I doubled mixture as it would only make a tiny one, and what use is that Ha Ha!!
As you can see mine looks a little overdone it is a bit but I like it like that and the camera made it darker than it really is!
