redcurrant ice-cream

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 probably won’t make any as can’t stand not doing things properly. So please tell me what you think when you have made them, how totally creamy they are and how fattening they are too!!!

redcurrant ice cream

500g redcurrants
100g granulated sugar, or to taste
300ml single cream/creme fraiche
Pre-chill a plastic container in the freezer.

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
