What shall I make?
Just been round the freezers, and I find I have:
A few ounces of redcurrants
A few ounces of blackcurrants
2lb of blackberries
6lb of strawberries
11lb of raspberries
The strawbs were bought but the rest were wild. What shall I make?

If there's only a few ounces of currants, I can make jelly if you like.

How much raspberry jam is there in the garage? I can take a couple of pounds off your hands for jam. Same for strawberry. Could be homemade Christmas pressies for family?

Otherwise, wine and vodka!

Thinking of a few gallons of wine, as I haven't made any for a while:
1. 4lb strawbs
2. 1lb strawb, 2lb blackberries, 1lb rasp
3. 1/2lb strawb, 3lb rasp, the redcurrants
4. 1/2lb strawb, 3lb rasp, the blackcurrants
5. The remaining 4lb rasp
And to round it off, 6. juice of 15 lemons (try to make this one fizzy!)

I'm thinking mixed-berry crumble.

Summer pudding! I bet all the juice would work pretty well with gluten-free bread.

That's not an alcoholic drink. You're in entirely the wrong ballpark.

Boozy summer pudding? I like your thinking.

Fruit liqueur - perhaps with cream (if the fruit won't curdle it) and/or honey? Sometimes I've got away with it, sometimes not...

Well, it divides up rather neatly into 5 * gallon-of-wine's-worth-of-fruit, so....
