Blackcurrant

A close relative of the redcurrant, it grows well in north Europe and Asia. Small shiny black berries which have an intense flavour, but too sour to eat raw. Perfect sweetened and stewed, and then used to fill pies and puddings, and are perfect for jam making. A rich source of vitamin C. In France, blackcurrants are used to make the alcoholic cordial creme de cassis, which can be spooned over ice cream and added to chilled cooked blackcurrants.
