The fruit of a European bush which is related to a species which grows wild in North America, blackcurrants are small and round with a thin, sometimes translucent skin. A rich source of Vitamin C, blackcurrants are used in ice-creams, jams, jellies, puddings and pies. Black-currants are also used in liqueurs, cordials and lozenges.

When they are in season in July and August, it is worth buying extra and preserving them by bottling or home freezing.
