Someone who works with me and reads this blog brought in a sampling of her latest farmer's market purchase: currants! She said that they looked like "little pink pearls" and she knew I would appreciate them since I am always finding beautiful things in nature. What a gift to start my work day!
I was especially fascinated by the tiny seeds hidden in each translucent globe. I cannot say that I created any culinary greatness with them but my girls did enjoy an unusual snack.
