What 'Czech' fruit do you miss the most?
You forgot cherries and apricots; I never eat them unless I am in the Czech republic.
I actually find quite good cherries and apricots in our markets here. My friend has an apricot tree and her’s taste the best.
Švestky se taky dají koupit celkem dobré, i třešně, ale meruňky jsou málokdy chutné. Problém s nimi je, že zralé jsou moc měkké a špatně se převážejí, tak je prodávají nezralé a bez chuti. Bohužel neznám nikoho poblíž, kdo má strom. My ano, ale ještě malý. Meruňky jsou mé nejoblíbenější ovoce, ale pořádné jsem neměla uz léta. Do ČR jezdím v srpnu a to už je na ně pozdě 🙁 Chybí mi všechno z naší zahrady v ČR, protože to výborně chutná, ale co se tu nedá koupit třeba ryngle 🙂
Found red currants in a local market here in Utah. The market is called Ream’s. I bought a dozen small cartons of them. I love them!
No way! I wonder why are Americans so anti-currant. I bet you were the only one who was buying them, right?;)
Make sure you make a currant jelly out of them!! For Christmas cookies…
Well, I guess it’s the same with currants here as with cranberries in the CZ. They can grow them there too but I don’t know that they would be widely used. Once in a while in a restaurant with deer dish, while in the US it seems they are in everything, starting with juices, cocktails, cakes, Thanksgiving dinner revolves around them 🙂 I am also wondering whether currants are not more common in the northern part of the US, which is closer to CZ climate. But everything is a supply and demand equation…not enough demand for currant 🙂 Actually most people don’t even know what it is!
My favorite memories associated with currents is my grandparents lived in Ceska Lipa at the time and they would help to make syrup from currents. They would use like a meat grinder and smushed the currents and then take the juice and make a syrup. I would then mix it with ordinary tap water or use mattoni to make a bubbly drink
