Black Currant Ice-Cream Recipe

in theuncook9 months ago (edited)

Black Currant Ice Cream is one of my favorite desserts. The kids in the family love it. The adults love it. The problem with black currant as a fruit it it rapidly decays as soon as you pluck it from the trees. The lifespan of the fruit before it starts going bad is less than 24 hours.

I guess that's why we have black currant as a flavor but rarely anyone would have seen it or consumed it as an actual fruit. But if you do get a chance to consume don't miss out ! It's yum and exotic !

Tips

I tend to freeze fruit pulp and store for future and off season use. So the fruit pulp pics are likely to be of frozen pulp.
