Step by step recipe


Stage 1 - 10 min.
Fruit paste : Blackcurrant
Bring 800 g Blackcurrant coulis (without sugar) to a boil, skim the foam that forms on the surface.

Fruit paste : Blackcurrant
Add 200 g glucose syrup and 900 g caster sugar at once.

Stage 3 - 5 min.

Bring to a boil again while whisking gently.

You may need to skim again.

Stage 4 - 3 min.
Fruit paste : Blackcurrant
Mix in a bowl 100 g caster sugar and 80 g jam gelling agent, then add this mixture to the pan, whisking briskly.

Note: We make this sugar + gelling agent mixture to facilitate the incorporation of the gelling agent into the blackcurrant, and to avoid that it clumps.

Pour into a 20 x 20 cm (8 x 8 inch) metal frame, lined with a sheet of cling film.

...then squares or small rectangles.

I have a preference for small rectangles of 1 cm by 2, but of course it is up to you.
