Redcurrant Gin recipe taken from Sensational Preserves
(For you Greenhouse Girl, and others who have more redcurrants that you could shake a currant bun at!)
Tis an easy one - 1 1/4 pounds redcurrants
10 oz caster sugar
27 fl/oz bottle of gin
Crish the currants with the sugar, then transfer the mix into a jar. Pour in the gin, cover and seal. Leave in a cool dark place for 3 months, shaking daily for a month, then just when you remember.
Strain, then I pass it through a muslin bag to get rid of as much sediment as possible. Bottle - if you can!
I guess you could then use the pickled currants in something...what I don't really know, maybe a triffle or pavlova. I shall be buying my bottle of mothers ruin tomorrow to get the brew under way.
