    Can't find them in any of the major supermarkets or local corner shops. A disaster if I can't provide the traditional blackcurrant and biscuit pie for the family Easter gathering.

    I had a similar problem when I was searching for blackcurrants a few months ago. I think they've all been taken to make Ribena .


    Would frozen blackcurrants be any good? If you have an Asda nearby, they sell a berry medley https://groceries.asda.com/product/fruit-smoothie-mixes/asda-frozen-for-freshness-berry-medley/910003052793 with 200g of blackcurrants that are quite easy to separate.

    Sainsburys sell them tinned https://www.sainsburys.co.uk/shop/gb/groceries/sainsburys-blackcurrants-in-juice-290g

    If you can use frozen these look good https://www.amazon.co.uk/DArta-Greens-Frozen-Blackcurrants-5x1kg/dp/B07G5PBWSF

    Do you live in an Ocado delivery area? It lists Blackcurrant Pie Filling.

    https://www.ocado.com/webshop/product/Princes-Blackcurrant-Fruit-Filling/40222011?from=search&param=blackcurrant


    However, there would be a risk that you would spend over 40 plus delivery charge and then find it out of stock when your delivery is made.
