An unusual flavor sorbet made with fresh blackcurrants and lime juice that comes out delightfully pink and delicious!

blackcurrants Ingredients:

2 cups fresh blackcurrants
1 cup water
1 cup sugar
Juice of 2 fresh limes

Place the blackcurrants and water into a blender. Blend until smooth and then pour through a sieve. Press to extract the juice from the blackcurrants. (Just discard the flesh of the fruit left in the sieve)

Mix the blackurrant juice with the lime juice and sugar in a saucepan over a medium heat. Stir continuously until the sugar has dissolved and it forms a syrup. Remove the syrup from the heat and leave to cool. When cooled, place in the refrigerator to chill (overnight or minimum 2-3 hours). When the mixture is thoroughy chilled pour it into an ice cream maker and freeze according to the manufacturer's instructions. Serves 8-10.
