‘Ribena’ Syrup

I LOVE RIBENA! This was my only craving while I was pregnant! My husband used to think Ribena was made of Ribenaberries – then found out it was made of blackcurrants. I really wanted to make a homemade version for the boys to try, but unfoooortunately I have never seen blackcurrants sold here in Australia, so I had to improvise a bit!
