Pick Black Currants. Simmer Black Currants slowly. Strain juice through a jelly bag. Enjoy dark, sharp juice trickling into white bowl. (Try not to get on pale limestone floor and remember to concentrate on job in hand i.e. making jelly and not photography.)
Add sugar and bring to a rolling boil. Experience nervous moments until mysterious 'setting point' is reached. Be amazed when jelly actually does wrinkle under finger as described by jam-making recipe. Put in jars. Put on pantry shelf. Feel major sense of achievement - not unlike Pioneer Wife.
