We've got a couple of blackcurrant bushes that my daughter brought all the way back from uni on the train a couple of years ago.

I also had a go at a recipe I wrote down years and years ago and have never tried. It's called Cheddar Sunset Loaf
It's pretty tasty as there's onion in and then sandwiched in the middle is a layer of sliced tomatoes and cheese so it's like a cooked sandwich! You can have it spread with butter but I didn't bother on my slices. The only complaint I've got is that when it was sliced the top and bottom came apart but I think that could be remedied.
