    Whiplash Injury in Saltcoats


    A whiplash injury in Saltcoats could mean a compensation claim for you

    Saltcoats is a town on the west coast of Ayrshire in Scotland. If you live there and are trying to eat a healthier diet, you might wish to add redcurrants to your shopping list as they are rich in vitamin C, iron and potassium. Strangely enough, when redcurrants first appeared in written form it was in the 15th century and they were described as herbs. We now know that they are a member of the gooseberry family, however, back then they were not seen as a food.

    Get your berries here

    By 1629 though, the apothecary to King James I wrote that redcurrants were usually eaten fresh in summer or made into preserves in the winter. By the 19th century, a horticulturist advised how to keep redcurrants stored for years in corked bottles. He suggested that if they were gathered perfectly dry and stored away from air in a dry environment, packed into a bottle and corked and then stored in a chest, that they would keep for a long time.

    When planted, redcurrants provide beautiful clumps pf ripe fruit which makes wonderful jellies and juices. They also make tasty flavouring to accompany dishes such as lamb or game. You may wish to think about buying some plants as they are really easy to grow. They grow best where they can get a bit of sunlight to sweeten the berries but they will grow in most places.

    The problem when growing redcurrants is hungry birds, they love the berries and so you need to cover your plants with a fruit cage or you can forget your crops as the birds will devour them.

    If you decide that you don’t wish to grow them yourself and you want to shop for them only buy berries that are plump and firm with a solid colour shiny skin. Make sure you don’t end up with cracks or brown spots on your berries.
