Redcurrant recipes

Redcurrant

Redcurrant recipes are ripe for cooking with. Try these pretty, bright red, juicy berries with their tart, sparkling flavour. Use them to decorate cakes and puddings - dip them in lightly whisked egg white then roll in sugar to give them a frosted effect.

Preparation

Redcurrants, with their high pectin content, make beautiful jellies full of vigour that are perfect on toast or stirred into gravies and sauces to be served with lamb and game. Fresh redcurrants are essential in summer pudding, but also marry beautifully with strawberries for a cool, elegant, healthy dessert.
