Planning a BBQ this weekend?  Think about adding this to your feast….

Easy Blackcurrant Salsa
Heat approximately two cups of blackcurrants (fresh or frozen) in a small amount of white vinegar (or lemon juice and wine).  Stir in 4 teaspoons of castor sugar, salt & pepper, and half a cup of diced red or spring onion.  Cool, and stir in half a cup of shredded mint leaves.

Remember you can use this health giving fruit in smoothies, muffins, cakes, desserts, jams, drinks, porridge and almost anything you can think of!
