We are very lucky to have some gorgeous black currants at the moment. We only have one bush but it produces plenty of sweet juicy currants that the whole family love. We had a few too many for us to eat this year so I searched for some ideas of what to make with them and came across this recipe on the Channel 4 Website
I tweaked the recipe a bit, I pureed the black currants for a long time and didn’t bother with the sieving part. I also added slightly less castor sugar but more icing sugar because that was what I had in the cupboard! Anyway, they came out delicious and rather than tasting just like a fruit lolly I think they are more like a sorbet. I might have to go out and buy some more black currants as the children are asking for more lollies!
