  • 750g blackcurrants
  • 225g caster sugar
  • Juice of 1 small lemon
  • 400ml double cream


  1. Cook the currants and sugar over a low heat until the sugar has dissolved and the currants are softened.
  2. Cool the mixture and then pass it through a sieve.
  3. Add the lemon juice.
  4. Whip cream lightly to thicken.
  5. Add 1 tbsp of cream into purée and stir through.
  6. Add the purée mixture to the rest of the whipped cream.
  7. Freeze in an ice-cream machine. If you don't have an ice-cream machine, freeze in a freezer, taking out at hourly intervals and stirring through to break up the ice crystals.
  8. Enjoy. It's best eaten as soon as possible, so don't hold back.
