About this recipe: No need for an ice cream maker! This quick to make, colourful and tart ice cream is perfect for a summer afternoon. Excellent with biscotti or almond biscuits.
This recipe has been modified and now calls for whipping cream, instead of single cream.
I wouldn't have thought of using red currants to make ice cream but this was delicious. I agree with the previous reviewer - it needed some double cream (I used half and half). I also used slightly less sugar. The result was a rich, tangy, intensely fruity ice cream that would be suitable for any occasion. - 31 Jul 2013
Im sure its lovely. However due to the incorrect recipe saying to use single cream, after nearly 30mins of whisking I have given up. Single cream is obviously not the cream to use. Very irritating as I now have redcurrant mixture with no cream therefore no dessert fo my guests. - 07 Jul 2014
I originally bought single cream but when I read through the recipe and saw the reference to whisking the cream 'until stiff' I thought this was odd. Then I read through the reviews and realised that double cream was required!! Somewhat annoying as I had to go out and buy more cream, but the ice cream I eventually produced was delicious. - 04 Jun 2014
