So after noticing the birds starting to eat the black currents. I decided the currents were read for harvesting. I ended up with about 1 kilo of berries after it was processed.

Here is an article on the benefits of Black current, i am most excited about the GLA found in the seeds.
There for i made sure to not heat or separate out the seeds in this recipe:)

I also want to stress the importance of fat soluble vitamins.

Hence i believe this combination is excellent in bringing the amazing power of black currents to the body. Anyways!


Here i am processing the currents. I would put one stem on and than put my hand down and pull the stem. This was satisfactory enough for me.

Than they go into my vitamix 3600, which i bought used!!

The results

Now here is the recipe i used. I ended up putting about 3/4 cup of maple syrup in instead of the 1/2 cup. I followed the recipe on the right written in blue pen.

Whipping cream!

Whipped cream mixture with currents mixed in :)

All ready to go into the freezer. We make them in about 2 cup amounts.

These are not the droids you are looking for. Perhaps I can interest you in a tiny ad?
