The strawberries were easy to deal with - they went in porridge for two breakfasts in a row. The gooseberries and redcurrants sat glaring at me from the windowsill for two days, threatening to rot where they sat and be completely wasted. Eventually I forced myself to sit down in front of two episodes of The Waltons (well, it's nice to have a bit of homely inspiration) and separated the redcurrants from their stalks, which was most satisfying.
I'm afraid I couldn't face doing anything with them after that, so they've gone straight in the freezer, along with the gooseberries.
Today brought even more berries - fortunately of the low-input-required variety.
It didn't take me long to process them, or pile on a dollop of yogurt and porridge, and very tasty they were too.
