The first time I ever saw a fresh currant I lost my mind. The berries were translucent, attached to a delicate vine and smaller than the size of a pinky-tip. Dried currants were all I knew. My first bite into a fresh currant shot sour pangs up through my ears. Amazing. These little guys are powerful culinary artillery and deserve a treatment that rallies the imagination.
Ice cream is one of the most exciting things to make at home. We decided to incorporate red currants from the market and create a frozen custard of a different color. Since fresh currants do in fact exist, then why not join us in our ice cream adventure. Churn up this recipe, lay out a bunch of spoons, invite friends over, and break into new culinary territory.
