I adore redcurrants almost as much as I adore peaches and nectarines. redcurrants have a short season so I like to pig out a bit when they are around however they are so sour they need a bit of work to make them taste nice. One of my favourite things is to eat them with yoghurt in some way - like in the image above - with finely grated apple (that in this image admittedly looks a bit like worms lol) Making the redcurrants ready to eat takes a lot of time as I like to leave them in the fridge overnight to "sweeten" a little.
- a pound of redcurrants
- 2 - 3 oz - 50 - 75 grams of castor sugar
- 1 oz - 25 grams of brown sugar
- pint - 500 ml of yoghurt
- small apple, finely grated or chopped
To prepare redcurrant "goo":
- Wash and take the berries from the stalks, making sure to take out any bad ones.
- Put the redcurrants and castor sugar (not the brown sugar yet) in a largish bowl squish them with a fork.
- When you can see no more whole berries cover the bowl with cling film and put in the fridge over night.
- Just before serving add the brown sugar and stir - this makes it darker but also sweetens it a bit more
To prepare the yoghurt drink:
- Put the grated apple into the bottom of a a really large glass or bowl.
- Add a good 10 - 15 table spoons of the goo till the glass or bowl is half full.
- Pour yoghurt over the top.
