If you can't wait for your own bush to bloom, gather currants from a nearby pick-your-own farm. This recipe project takes 2 hours to complete.
- medium bowl
- fork or potato masher
- dish towel
- clean pair of old pantyhose (or muslin)
2 cups (225 g) red currants, stalks removed
1/2 cup (100 g) raspberries
1 1/4 cups (240 g) sugar
14 fl ounces (400 ml) cold water
1. Ask an adult to make a syrup.
Heat 1 1/2 cups (240 g) sugar and 14 fl ounces (400 ml) of water slowly in a saucepan, stirring gently until the sugar has dissolved. Boil for 3 minutes, then cool.
2. Mash the fruit.
Put the fruit into a bowl. Mash it together well, using the back of a fork or a potato masher. Place a damp dish towel under the bowl so it doesn't slip.
