I love ice-cream, these recipes are my favourites, redcurrant ice-cream being my most very favourite childhood memory inducing ice-cream, however, whilst I have made all these ice-creams in the UK, I have not made them here in Portugal because I CAN’T GET PROPER CREAM HERE!!!!!!! so until I get my own cow, I’m substituting fresh cream with creme fraiche, it works
I’ve also noticed from my stats that this is one of the most visited entries on my blog, which is fascinating, so please drop me a line and let me know why you have looked at this recipe and if you’ve made it, how did it turn out
100g granulated sugar, or to taste
300ml single cream/creme fraiche
Pre-chill a plastic container in the freezer or your ice cream maker bowl..
In a medium saucepan on a medium heat, cook the redcurrants until they have burst.
Strain the redcurrants through a fine sieve and combine with sugar to taste. Chill in the fridge.
Whisk cream/creme fraiche until stiff and fold into the redcurrant concentrate.
Pour into pre-chilled container, cover and freeze for 2 hours or until firm, or use your machine as per instruction booklet (if you still have it and can find it!!)
