DIRECTIONS

  • (Boil the water and currants without the sugar until the fruit are soft. Sugar added too soon makes the currants tough, and they will not release their flavour.).
  • Cover the currants with 1 cup of water and boil until the fruit is soft.
  • Strain the mixture, keeping only the juice.
  • Add 1 cup of sugar to the juice and reheat.
  • Once the sugar has dissolved and the mixture has thickened a little pour the black currant syrup into a jar and seal, allow to cool, then place in refrigerator until ready to use.
  • When ready to serve, add ice cubes and the squeezed lemon halve to the chilled glass.
  • For one serving of lemonade use equal parts syrup and equal parts cold water with juice from a half a lemon.
