Redcurrants with Yogurt - Fit for a Royal

This is a less known, easy to make dessert that deserves be more popular, the taste is wonderful! It's a typical summer time pudding with not only redcurrants and yogurt but some sherry and ratafia/macaroon/amaretti biscuits and sugar to make a naughty refreshing treat. Here is what you will need in detail:

3/4 lb (375g) Redcurrants
2 Tablespoons of sherry
3 oz (75g) Sugar
2 oz (50g) Ratafia bisuits
1/2 pint (300ml) Natural yogurt

Chilling time: 30 minutes

  1. First strip the currants from their stems and rinse. Put two thirds of the currants in a bowl with the sherry and sugar and stir until all of the sugar has dissolved.
  2. Then crush the ratafia biscuits to coars crumbs with a rolling pin (or spade) and mix lightly in with the redcurrants and juice into the yogurt. 
  3. Simply place the mixture into 4 serving bowls or glasses and chill in a refrigerator for 30 minutes
What we have finished already! That was super quick to make but get ready for the taste!

 It is such a shame that it's not more popular than pavlovas but that's my opinion, what's yours?
