easier than fresh cos the fruit is a bit mushy and takes little breaking open

Buy 'alcool pour fruits' seeing as you're in that France. Cheaper than nice vodka and nicer than cheap vodka.

very large kilner jar full of vodka and blackcurrants started for cassis.
How long does this take ?

I made blackcurrant cordial with the rest of the fruit..making room in a small chest freezer
The sieved pulp is back in the freezer until next week for blackcurrant and apple cheese.
