Thanks - I was about to start a search for the same. People round here have told me that Muscadet is used, not red wine, and in fact, I bought some home-made with Muscadet off a local woman last year at a vide grenier - she wouldn't give me her recipe though!

I made some creme de cassis last week, and my recipe is almost identical to that below. The recipe (and access to her cassis bushes) was given to me by my partner's 'tante'.

The difference in her recipe is the glass of strong alcohol is added at the end of the recipe (the alcohol in this case being the 'alcohol pour fruits' that you can buy relatively cheaply in the supermarket). So, as in the previous recipe:-

Pour 1kg de cassis écrasés -Le mettre au frais à macérer pendant 5 jours avec1 litre de vin rouge de 9-14° 6 feuilles de cassis. But then..........

I pressed the fruit through muslin into a large pot added the sugar and brought the mixture to a boil. When the mixture cooled I then added the alcohol pour fruits and bottled. (because I wanted some syrope de cassis as well, I syphoned off some before adding the alcohol.)
