Your blackcurrant coulis is ready. You can use it now and add sugar, or freeze it.


Unlike other fruits, blackcurrants should not be blended, because vegetable mills give better results.

If blackcurrants are very difficult to mill, you can soften them by putting in boiling water for 30 second then draining, this will break skins.
