  • recipes with use of currants

    Hi everyone! My last post was connected with dishes including gooseberries. After preparation of some tasty dishes I started to think what to do with currants? I have got some red ones..I do not like them in their raw form, but maybe some dessert recipes will be good for me? What do you use them for?

    Most of my currant recipes involve covering them in sugar then steeping them in gin.

    The other recipes use brandy.

      Red currants?
      Hmm...I have a couple of bushes and have to say that although I save a few in the freezer for decorating a dessert , I generally bung them in with blackcurrant dishes!
      One of those plants (along with white currants) I was thinking of adding to VC's list of 'why on earth do I grow these'

      So...I 'm hoping to be wooed by some suggestions on this thread!

        I've made redcurrant jelly (jam) and mixed them up with other fruit for jams and puddings.
        You need a lot to eat them on their own.

          I have never tried it , but when you buy fruit tarts over here they have a fine layer of gel over the fruit.
          I wonder if you could make something out of the red currants to use in the same way?..or would they be too tart?
