Have been busy searching for a recipe

Of what to do with the redcurrants.. didn't want to make jam as the beautiful red rubies deserved better than me ruining them..

So I tried gently cooking them with some sugar and spooning some over strawberries and ice-cream...mmm now that was a good combination..

Next I am going to try this :
Baked vanilla cheesecake
  • 8 digestive biscuits
  • 50g butter , melted
  • 600g cream cheese
  • 2 tbsp plain flour
  • 175g caster sugar
  • vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs , plus 1 yolk
  • 142ml pot soured cream
  1. Heat the oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4. Crush the biscuits in a food processor (or put in a plastic bag and bash with a rolling pin). Mix with the butter. Press into a 20cm springform tin and bake for 5 minutes, then cool.
  2. Beat the cream cheese with the flour, sugar, a few drops of vanilla, eggs, the yolk and soured cream until light and fluffy. Pour into the tin. Bake for 40 minutes and then check, it should be set but slightly wobbly in the centre. Leave in the tin to cool.

Anyone got any other suggestions?
