Red currants are very pretty, and have a great flavor, but don't harken the u-picker to eat off the bush because they are too sour. A syrup is a great way to enjoy red currants, especially over waffles/pancakes or ice cream.
Clean 1.5 -2 C red currants
Add currants to small saucepan over medium heat with 1/4 C water and 1/4 C sugar (or use less depending on your taste)
Simmer for 15 minutes or so until berries are plump
Strain through fine mesh strainer and enjoy!
