    Take blackcurrant out of the oven and let them cool down..
    Put black currant in a glass or bowl when they are cold, so you have them when you need to serve them with ice.
    Server with the black currant with ice cream and a little toasted spelled flakes on top, and a little verbena.

    Caramel ice
    4 cups . Whole milk
    2 dl. cream
    120 g sugar
    3-5 grains of salt
    7 egg yolks
    Add sugar in a saucepan and let the sugar caramelize to light golden brown. When the sugar is caramelized , add milk, cream and salt and bring to the boil (salt may seem unusual, but you will find that it “breaks” the sweetness of the ice).
    Put egg yolks in a bowl and whisk careful the boiling milk / cream into them.
    Pour the egg cream back into the pan, put it back on the stove and warm it gently up to approx. 84-85 ° , with thorough mixing.
    Remove from the heat when the cream  begins to thicken – get the cream too high a temperature , it turns into scrambled eggs!
    Let the cream rest for 10-15 min. then back into the bowl and place it in the refrigerator.
    Stir in the occasionally until completely cold .
    Put the cream in an ice machine until it becomes solid and creamy, and them put the ice in the freezer until you need it . The ice keeps  the lovely creamy texture for 1-2 days.
