Red Currants

Here’s the latest addition to our fruit registry – red currants.  How exciting!

Red currants are great in jellies, juices and cakes.  The combination of sweet and tangy also makes an interesting sauce with pork or poultry.

Do you have a favourite red currant recipe?  Any favourite memories involving this fruit?

Over the summer we’ll be posting recipes for red currants and other backyard fruit, so check back often.  Our favourite recipes will also be included in our Guide to Backyard Fruit.
