fresh-red-currants

In Oz, ‘don’t eat the red berries!’  In Norway, ‘eat as much as you want’.  I grew up enjoying nature from a distance.  Australians are taught to be scared of everything because it will bite, poison or kill you.  On the other side (of the world) people live life differently.  Nature gives without taking.  Little pockets of yummy goodness can be found right outside your backdoor.  Red currants grow wild in Norway, beside roads, next to fences and under trees.  It is so much nicer seeing something yummy and being allowed to eat it.  What a wonderful childhood it would be to always have blueberry fingers, red currant lips and cloud berry bellies.
