Kimberly Said:I have a recipe for fillet steak that requires fresh blackcurrants.?
We Answered:Grrr...posted wrong. You can use blueberries or elderberries red currants or gooseberries.
Mathew Said:How can a work out the amount of each part in this recipe?
We Answered:The amounts do not matter, only the proportions.
For example, if you were making this for a party, you may want to use pints as the unit of measure.
2 pints grapefruit, 2 pints orange juice, 1 pint lemonaid, 1 pint lime juice, 2 pints black currant
You could even use juice glasses or coffee cups as the unit and it will come out the same.

Isaac Said:Can I make jam from store bought blackcurrants? All the recipes I found, call for blackberrie bushes.?
We Answered:No, you can use them. The reason the books say freshly picked is because you'll know they're fresh, that they haven't been "helped" to grow or has anything put on them to keep them shop fresh. If you've picked them straight off the bush, you know what will be going into your jam and not any additives or preservatives.
These ones will do for jam making though.

We Answered:Try this one...
It is not black current jam, but it should work in your machine...

Try this anyhow;

Norman Said:Is blackcurrant sorbet a good idea?
We Answered:I haven't tried it but am a big fan of blackcurrant jam which has similar ingredients. =)
Here is a simple recipe.
100g glucose syrup
Put the water and sugar into a pan and heat gently for 3-4 minutes until the sugar has completely dissolved. Add the glucose and blackcurrants and cook
over a low heat for 3-4 minutes, stirring every so often until the blackcurrants soften.
Remove from the heat and blend two thirds in a liquidiser
to a smooth purÃ©e, then blend the other third briefly and coarsely and mix the two batches together. Leave to cool then churn in an ice-cream machine and store in the freezer.
