Blackcurrant Syrup

This syrup is equally good mixed with sparkling water or champagne for a refreshing summer drink or poured over ice cream, mixed with natural yoghurt or swirled into fairy cake mix.  You can whisk it into meringues or  dunk bread soldiers into it for a naughty snack. it will keep for up to 2 weeks in the fridge. 

Encourage children to top and tail the blackcurrants if you need to keep them occupied for 15 minutes, otherwise don't bother, once you sieve them after cooking they'll take care of themselves.
