Very interesting read moon, a Polish American gentleman of my acquaintance Frank (actually the old biker my Grandma shacked up with when she divorced Grandpa) shared stories of his own Grandpa (born in Poland) making something like this in his Omaha, Nebraska basement in the 1930s.

I have a massive crop of black currants ripening and several pounds still frozen from last year. I may give this one a try.

Ah man, I used to make this all the time. Actually, my grandmother would make it out of flavored syrups, and that's what my Polish family would drink at celebrations.

 

I took her recipe and started making them with real fruit. Super tasty stuff. My favorite one was plum/mint.
