For the classics, make into a sticky-sweet cordial, an intensely fruity syrup to pour over vanilla ice cream or Greek-style yogurt, or add to a summer pudding with a mix of sweeter berries to balance out their punchy flavour.
Blackcurrants are best kept in the fridge. They come straight from the farm, so they will need a wash. Wait until you're ready to eat them first - otherwise the moisture will encourage the fruit to spoil.
Early July to late August.
