Red Currant Puree

I spent about 1 hour the other day picking red currants from a bush at my bf's parents house. I picked loads, and we made red currant cordial. I also brought some berries home with me, and browsing on I came across this recipe for Red Currant Puree. Martha says you can use the puree for a Red Currant Champagne Cocktail. I'm always up for a drink, so I decided to take on the challenge of making my own red currant puree.

Red Currant Puree

680 g red currants, frozen or fresh, stemmed
0.9 dl sugar
2 tbsp sugar

Place the ingredients in a saucepan. Stir to combine. Bring to the boil on medium to high heat, lower heat to simmer for 15 minute,s or until all the juices have been released.
Sieve through a fine meshed sieve into a bowl. Allow to cool. Can be stored in the fridge for 7 days. I poured the puree into ice-cube bags and placed them in the freezer.
